From the home office in Country Club Hills, Illinois, here's the clip of Mark Buehrle(notes) reading his personalized top 10 list on David Letterman's Late Show. It's pretty much the highest honor this country can issue for a civilian accomplishment these days.
I laughed out loud at Nos. 4 and 8, but overall, a pretty weak effort. Then again, I guess we should expect good baseball jokes from late night comedy writers as often as we expect major league pitchers to deliver them cleanly. (Still, not one Ozzie or A.J. joke? I know neither of them have ever played for the Yankees, but would it have killed them to throw us a bone?)
