Here's comedian Mike Birbiglia talking about performing at the annual dinner held by the New York chapter of the Baseball Writers Association of America. This is where the writers hand out their major awards—the MVP, the Cy Young, Rookie of the Year, etc. (It gets slightly NSFW at the end.)
So, who was the humorless, quick-to-take-offense recipient of the BBWAA Lifetime Achievement award who couldn't let a comedian's mild, decidedly not pointed jest go unremarked upon? Five minutes of googling provided the answer, in the form of this blog post by a friend of Birbiglia's who was in attendance that night.
