SAVANNAH, GA - The Savannah Sand Gnats are truly bringing the heat with a first-ever fire promotion at a minor league baseball game on Saturday, August 14 with Guinness World Record Holder, Ted Batchelor. After the Sand Gnats' game against the Kannapolis Intimidators, which will begin at 6:05, and before the evening's fireworks show, one lucky fan will light Batchelor on fire; he will then circle the bases at Historic Grayson Stadium.
"This is a game-changer," said Sand Gnats President John Katz. "Instead of having our promotions crew do the Cha-Cha Slide between the game and the fireworks, we're going to light a match and make some memories. Some really, really cool memories."
"Light a match and make some memories." I seem to remember Timothy McVeigh saying something similar.
But wait, there's more! It's also Marine Corps Appreciation Night, so at least some people with experience in emergency medicine may be on hand.

Yesterday we had Tina Fey's 1995 Mutual Savings Bank commercial. Today we have footage from a 1992 bat mitzvah, where Paul Rudd was the DJ.
There's air guitar. There's candle-blowing. There's a ridiculous haircut. Enjoy.
