Actor Dominic Chianese, better known to you as Uncle Junior on The Sopranos, sang the national anthem prior to last night’s Phillies game against the Giants in South Philadelphia. It was Italian Heritage Night down at Citizens Bank Park and this is where I’d typically make some obscure Sopranos joke but I’m ashamed to say I’m one of the very few Italian Americans to have never seen the hit HBO show from start to finish — we didn’t have HBO in college, WHADAYOUWANTFROMME?
Sorry Dad. I never wanted to disappoint you.
You can catch more of Uncle Joon’s chat with Gregg Murphy here.
Also, to all of you executives of professional baseball teams not named the Phillies: did you see Michael Young hit a HOME RUN last night? You totally want him in your lineup. There’s still time!
