Derek Holland tried his hand at taking Will Ferrell's job during the World Series, and on Friday he took his shot at Willard Scott's gig.
Holland, the Rangers' left-hander, tried his hand at doing the weather on Dallas' WFAA. And, well, he did it in his own, usual goofy way.
Holland said he had long wanted to be a weatherman and studied journalism at Wallace State Community College in Hanceville, Ala. They obviously didn't cover the green screen in his courses.
Unfortunately he can't give up his Ferrell doing Harry Caray schtick -- but I do give him credit for thinking ahead and wearing a green shirt so he could go headless. I'll also give credit to WFAA's Pete Delkus (a former Twins farmhand) for calling him out on his Ed Bassmaster impression, which got annoying, and the fact that his Caray impression was more of Ferrell than the late Cubs and Cardinals announcer. The good news, for Holland and Dallas-area TV viewers, is that pitchers and catchers report next week.
