This just has to be shared. Granderson’s doing the TBS postgame show, and they were asking him, since he grew up in Chicago, if he was a Cubs or Wrong Sox fan. Curtis says, nope, Braves fan.
He claims that it’s because Braves games were on TBS all the time (I find this AWFULLY convenient and a little suspect… after all, he IS doing broadcasts for that very channel at the moment. Then again, Curtis Granderson is perfect and as such would not lie to us), so he watched them a lot.
And Cubs games often interfered with his favorite TV show. Saved by the Bell.
He was all adorkably embarrassed by it, and then, as usual, instead of letting this golden nugget of happiness sit where it was, TBS had to try to hammer it into the ground by photoshopping Granderson and the rest of the crew into photos from Saved by the Bell (I will admit that The Eck looked hilarious in it. Everyone else: total overkill).
Curtis Granderson. Braves. Saved by the Bell. Somehow, that is awesome.
(And I am quite glad that he did not grow up a Wrong Sox fan. Really that’s just further proof that he is a perfect human being.)
ETA: Unrelated to Tigers, but if you want to see my Red Sox fan playoff concerns, rendered pithily in Terrible Cartoon form, you can enjoy that very thing over here.
