"…there was an old local grocery store commercial, and we live in Atlanta, and it advertised the Atlanta Braves. It was like, “the Atlanta Braves hit home runs, and you can hit a home run with savings here!” And so there was this player named Mark Lemke, and they said something like “All star second baseman for the Braves.” And our friend knows nothing about sports, and so he would always do his old timey radio impression of this guy, and not knowing any positions in baseball or whatever, he’d just be like, “Homestar Runner for the Braves.” And we were just like, “Homestar Runner? That’s the best thing we’ve ever heard!”"
