Just because: The 1975 MLB Bazooka bubble-blowing contest

By Dayn Perry | Baseball Writer

Question: What is Claudell Washington doing in the following action-news GIF?

Answer: He is endeavoring, at great physical and spiritual cost, to earn a spot in the 1975 Joe Garagiola Bazooka Big League Bubble Gum-Blowing Championship. 'Tis a ruthless crucible, that 1975 Joe Garagiola Bazooka Big League Bubble Gum-Blowing Championship!

Among those not sufficiently hardy for the demands of the 1975 Joe Garagiola Bazooka Big League Bubble Gum-Blowing Championship? Tim McCarver and Catfish Hunter! Gladiatorial enough for the 1975 Joe Garagiola Bazooka Big League Bubble Gum-Blowing Championship? Kurt Bevacqua and Johnny Oates!

Bear harrowed witness ...

Are you not entertained, Garagiola? Are you not entertained?

Calipers!
