I was expecting Henry Silva (or maybe Jan Harold Brunvand) to pop up saying "Bullshit … or not?"The unnamed ballplayer was Red Sox first baseman Harry "The Golden Greek" Agganis.Here's another, fuller account of Telly's tale as retold by Larry King, but without the hilarious high voice.
I was trying to figure out who the ball player was, but I don't know enough about baseball (despite being from Lowell, MA - which has a very large Greek population!)I hope Telly's ghost comes back to help me out. I plan on stopping in White Castles on my way home.
I had never seen that clip before. I really dig Telly Savalas.
Telly operated on a level beyond us all.
I like to think Telly is operating among us, now.
