Ramblin’ Jack Elliott’s Lies Exposed, Sort Of Tours Too

Howdy, padner. I’m gonna spin you a little yarn about ol’ Ramblin’ Jack – one from back in the day when he wasn’t so ramblin’. We return briefly to the Age of Giant Reptiles, or, as I like to refer to it, 1993:

A little old movie called Mr. Baseball hits theaters to mixed critical reviews. A risqué biopic that gets at the true nature of Ramblin’ Jack, the real Jack Elliot. None of that fluffy, Time Magazine, cowboy bullshit. The sordid tale begins, as Wikipedia so eloquently states, when “[Elliot] an aging American baseball player [is] put on the trading block by The New York Yankees in favor of a younger player (former Chicago White Sox legend, Frank Thomas), and there's only one taker: the Nagoya Chunichi Dragons of Japan's Nippon Professional Baseball.”

Needless to say, Jack didn’t much like Japan. As you can image, the movie documents how “the arrogant Elliot clashes with the Japanese culture and soon alienates his new teammates.” Truth is, Jack’s been dealing with aliens all his life. Ever since they picked him up as a small boy in Brooklyn and performed all those experiments on him, he’s been a little... well, let’s just say Jack’s been jumpy. Speaking of which, let me tell you about th... whoa... give me a second... there it goes again. Alright time to take summore of my medicine. I’ll catch you fine folks on your way back.
