At least he didn't have to worry about waking up for a day game.
A Sunday night karaoke session with former Blackhawks player Chris Chelios, Eddie Vedder and the very recently-retired Chicago Cubs pitcher Kerry Wood is making the rounds on the Internet.
Once can't help but wonder:
- When did Kerry Wood take up smoking? Wood is seen with a cigarette in hand, and of course he's retired and can do whatever he wants, but you can't help but wonder whether this is a day-old habit or something this world-class athlete has been dabbling in for some time.
- On that same train of thought, isn't it illegal to smoke in Chicago bars and restaurants? Stanley's?
- Shouldn't the addition of a legitimate singer like Eddie Vedder at least make a karaoke song palatable to listen to? Apparently not.
The video was initially on YouTube.com, but not surprisingly, someone took it down.
