Pilgrimage for Buddy | Sox Player Goes to Hollywood

 buddyhackett5.jpg Fairfax, VA—Gray Sox third baseman Greg Grimes broke from his spring-training ritual of arranging stuffed animals for small children and spent Easter weekend in Hollywood, California, hoping to raise awareness about Buddy Hackett’s death. “Buddy has been gone for nearly two years, and I don’t hear many people commenting about it. They’re just going about their daily lives as if Buddy were still around. He’s not. He’s very much dead, and I just want people to know that his genius is gone.”  Grimes spent Easter weekend lying next to Hackett’s star in Hollywood and handing out leaflets that touted the late comedian’s movies and TV appearances. “I’m doing my part to spread the word. If just one person remembers those crossed eyes of his, then my trip will have been worth it,” said Grimes.

    This is classic!!! How on earth did G-Buddy end up looking so much like the immortal Buddy Hackett, one of the classic comedians of his, uh, era? That is, the era of comics who aren’t that funny but act really drunk or stupid for laughs!
