Here it is, Sarge fans.

Finally, the most stylish broadcaster in the business — in a duet with his grandson Denver — performed “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” within the friendly confines of Wrigley Field. Of course, he didn’t let down the Phillies fans. Instead of singing the expected “root, root, root for the Cubbies”, he let the crowd say it. He didn’t go with the requisite, “Now, go score some runs!” either, he just told the Cubs fans he loved them. so, even though he spent the last three years of his illustrious career and was on the coaching staff with Chicago, he definitely stayed loyal to his current home, Philadelphia.

Phillies radio broadcaster Larry Anderson couldn’t help but get his digs in at the Sarge,

“Larry Andersen said they’re dipping low in the barrel if they’re asking me to do it. I’ll be OK. I know the words and I’ll be fine.”

Well I’d say he was more than OK.  In his best baritone voice, here’s a fedora’d Sarge bringing down the house during the 7th inning stretch. Ah one, ah two, ah three:

Sarge then joined the Cubs broadcast team in the bottom of the inning:
