Digger Phelps sings ‘Take Me Out to the Ballgame’ at Wrigley Field

Aug 12, 2012, 2:28 PM EDT

With a signature matching highlighter in hand (blue for the hometown Chicago Cubs), TV analyst and former Notre Dame head coach Digger Phelps belted out his rendition of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” Saturday at Wrigley Field in Chicago.

Now, it’s not as bad as we’ve seen from some in the past, including Bill Murray, but it certainly wasn’t the best either. I was most concerned about the few times he seemed to try to dip into Thurl Ravenscroft’s territory, trying to hit low notes as if he were singing this famous song from “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.”

Overall, though, in the spirit of the Olympics, judges give it a 5.8/10.  Check out the video from CSN Chicago.

    The question is did anyone listen to him?
