Look first off….if yuh trying to be funny, it’s Al-Buh-Kur-Ke, it’s not Al Alburquerque. If you couldn’t tell by now– that is the words of the famous Mike Francesa. On his show yesterday a caller calls in to bring up Detroit Tigers relief pitcher Al Alburquerque and the Pope doesn’t even know he exists. Instead Mike thinks the “kid” calling in is trying to be funny and pronounce the city “Albuquerque” funny. Take a look.
You literally cannot make this up. I’m guessing in between breaks when Mike makes one of his many trips to the break room to pour his coke into the diet coke bottle, someone had to let him know that AL ALBUrQUERQUE is in fact a REAL PERSON and actually pitched the night before against his beloved New York Yankees. Remember when Cano hit dat grandslam in game 1, ya know the one you COULDN’T stop talking about….yeah dat was off AL-BUH-KUH-KEE.
His name is Alberto José Alburquerque OKAY!!?? Where the hell do you get AL from Alberto José Alburquerque, okay? I’m right, you’re wrong. Don’t test me, I’m only New Yawks numbuh one sports radio host….I don’t need to know who Al Alburquerque is…he’s only going to be pitching against duh Yankees in tonight’s deciding game 5.
