A tribute to Leslie Nielsen: It’s Enrico Pallazzo

It’s long overdue, but here’s a collection of videos paying tribute to Leslie Nielsen, who made his impact on the sports world as the immortal Frank Drebin, a.k.a Enrico Pallazzo a.k.a. Cummings the umpire. It was a movie that starred such sports figures as a Curt Gowdy, Jim Palmer, Mel Allen, Dick Enberg, Dick Vitale, Tim McCarver, O.J. Simpson (pre-murder), Reggie Jackson, and even a svelte Joe West. And it’s still great for laughs even two decades later. Enjoy!
