We probably won’t be getting an ESPN 30 for 30 on Bartolo Colon any time soon, so this fake trailer is the next best thing.
In light of his recent home run — the first of his career — one YouTube user (who also made a great fake trailer for the Wilmer Flores drama) pieced together a few of Colon’s offensive highlights. They mainly involve his helmet flying off, and though there’s some amateur footage of Bartolo slipping and falling a couple of years back and a nice belly-shake GIF. An out-of-context clip from former Dodgers catcher Johnny Roseboro was a nice touch, too.
Here is a well-deserved 30 for 30 trailer in all its glory.
Who wants to start a Kickstarter and make this happen?
