View Full Version : Castro beat to the punch by Will Ferrell

Will Ferrell's played some great characters over the years. But Billy Ray "Rojo" Johnson may be the best. Entering a minor league baseball game as a mysterious, mustachio'd relief pitcher, Ferrell delighted the crowd with his antics, downed a beer, and promptly through some chin music toward the batter. And for all you fans of baseball fights, he even threw in a tribute to Nolan Ryan's infamous Robin Ventura headlock.

Not much is known about "Rojo," though the announcers were able to shed a little light: he spent four years in the pen after dealing iguanas and other lizards. Let's just hope this isn't the last we see of him.

This doesn't have much if anything to do with the Cubs but it's too good to not share with the forum.

Hahahaha funny as hell....

Castro did beat him to something else.... His first for hits as a major leaguer gave him the career cycle. 1 single 1 double 1 triple and the career starting HR. 4 for 12.

No disrespect to anyone in this thread, but I thought it was really lame.
