Overheard during "The 50 Greatest Home Runs"

My dad gave us a VHS tape called "The 50 Greatest Home Runs." The boys love watching it. Here are some bits a pieces of the conversation during the viewing:
  • Was that hit in the World Serious??
  • The Giants? They were playing football on TV at Uncle Denny's house. For the Super Bowl.
  • Number three! That's Babe Ruth!
  • Mickey? Like Mickey Mouse? Mickey Mouse Clubhouse? (after Kevin explained that it was Mantle who hit a home run.)
  • I don't know those guys. I know Babe Ruth, but I don't know those guys (after seeing a few home runs hit in the 1980s).
  • That's Ken Griffey, Jr. and Ken Griffey, Jr.'s daddy.
  • Spwended Spwenter?
  • Didn't you go to that game? (A Cubs game that happened two years ago--half of Lou's lifetime.)
  • STRAWberry?! Why his name is Strawberry?
