Video: Joel Quenneville’s tone deaf ‘Take Me Out to the Ballgame’

Greg Wyshynski

During Monday night's Chicago Cubs game against the Atlanta Braves at Wrigley Field, Chicago Blackhawks Coach Joel Quenneville was invited to sing "Take Me Out To The Ballgame" during the seventh inning stretch.

Fifty-one seconds later, we're convinced that Coach Q's mustache is capable of accidentally filtering out things like tone and melody. Or, perhaps, Joel Quenneville just sings like a yak battling a stomach virus.

Yikes. Well that was … emphatic.

Here's the thing: This isn't Coach Q's first rodeo. Here's Joel Quenneville in June 2009, warbling "TMOTTB" at Wrigley:

Slightly faster tempo, the use of the crowd to sing "Cubbies" … maybe he's a better singer in daylight. Although "better" and "singer" are rather kind here.

Fun fact: If you play both of these at the same time, it actually makes them sound worse.
