The Melvins' Buzz Osborne Gets New Gig As MLB Correspondent
Steve Gorman: "You're playing little league as a kid. How long did you play and when did you realize maybe you weren't cut out to be an athlete full time?"
Osborne: "Well, I always knew I wasn't cut out to be full time, but I liked playing up until I was in junior high school - maybe 8th or 9th grade, and I really started hating the people I was playing with, so I walked away from all of it."
Gorman: "You know what, that will happen. Sometimes the problem with sports is the guys playing them."
Osborne: "Yes, I couldn't stand it and even to this day, I can't stand listening to … I really only like baseball… but if you had tickets to any professional sporting event I would go, you know, but I really only follow baseball. I cannot listen to those guys get interviewed, I shut it off. I cannot stand listening to jocks talk."
Gorman: "But now you're writing a Dodgers preview for Rolling Stone magazine. How did you get roped into that?"
Osborne: "They wanted me to do it, there's a guy over there that likes me and somehow knew I had an interest in baseball, and I have a huge interest, I mean I'm certainly no expert, but I'm a fan, I'm a huge fan and I always feel like I have more to learn."
Gorman: "Well we need a rock major league baseball correspondent to be on the show on a regular basis if you got a little extra time during the season."
Osborne: "Oh, I'm all over it. You wouldn't believe how few people me and Dale find on the road that want to talk about baseball" ***laughs***
