Video Fun Friday: “Kids in the Hall” Softball (and an updated site design!)

It’s the end of the first week of the year, and it looks like we have a slightly new look here at Wezen-Ball. It’s slick and updated and I’m pretty pleased with it (though there may be a kink or two still to work out).

And what better way to celebrate the new year, and this new look, than with some Video Fun Friday. This clip comes, in a way, with thanks to Netflix. “Kids In The Hall”, one of the funniest sketch shows ever, is now available in its entirety on Netflix Instant. I was watching the first season the other night and I came across this scene. I couldn’t not place it here.

As we watch this Scott Thompson softball version of Casey At the Bat – in one of Thompson’s best recurring roles – it makes me wonder: how do you rank the KITH guys? I think, career-wise, I put Dave Foley ahead of everyone else (“Newsradio” is one of my favorite shows ever), with Kevin McDonald #2. For the show, though, I think it goes Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Dave Foley, Scott Thompson, and Mark McKinney. But they’re all so close together, it’s almost silly to ask (in a 100 point-system, McCulloch and Thompson would probably be separated by 1.3 points or something). So how would you rank the five “Kids in the Hall” guys? And, since I’m asking questions, what do you think of the new design?

Have a good weekend, everyone!
