The video below sums it all up – Troy takes us through the assignment, reads the statement his daughter will present, and highlights the Joe Beimel Bobblehead “show and tell” that will be forthcoming.
He adds that his daughter will proclaim that The Legend of Joe Beimel is an “internet phoenomenon” and share some details about how Joe stumbled across the series of videos.
At the end, Joe mentions that his daughter will bring up Beimel’s free agency and the fact that he may not be back. Watch at about the 6:45 mark – I think you can see a tear forming in Troy’s eye at that point.
It’s 7:51 long, but pretty entertaining nonetheless.

Thanks to the L.A. Daily News and Los Angeles Times’ Dodger blogs for bringing this to our attention. Here is a guy, pacing around in his basement with a 7 foot ceiling wearing baseball pants that are 4 inches too long, reciting the Gospel of Joe Beimel according to TroyfromWestVirginia. Just when you think he’s run out of steam, he is back for more commentary that makes you spit out your drink. The best seven and a half minutes of YouTube out there right now.
Never just Joe. Never just Beimel. ALWAYS Joe Beimel.
