Marv Albert shows off all-time sports blooper reel on Letterman

Thursday January 8th, 2015


Marv Albert made his 126th appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman Wednesday night, and with Letterman's historic run coming to an end soon, Albert decided to show the very best of the sports bloopers that have highlighted his visits to the show.

Among the classic blunders, which the show has deemed the "Albert Achievement Awards," were Jose Canseco letting a ball bounce off his head for a home run, Paul Pierce struggling with the zipper on his warmup gear and, of course, George Brett's ill-fated game of soft toss with his son.

Hopefully, Albert will continue to stop by the show when Stephen Colbert takes over as host later in 2015, because it would be a real shame to let all these clips of people falling down go to waste.
