WHO'S ON FIRST ?

Our first season with this theme was a successful one with "I Don't Know Schmidt /mxw6" taking the WS. 
For Round 2, we're lowering the Cap by about 20% from $110M to $90M


2013 marks the 75th Anniversary of Abbott & Costello’s “Who’s on First?” routine. 
In February 1938, Abbott and Costello joined the cast of The Kate Smith Hour radio program, and the sketch was first performed for a national radio audience that March. Abbott and Costello performed "Who's on First?" numerous times in their careers, rarely performing it exactly the same way twice. By 1944, Abbott and Costello had the routine copyrighted.

 
If you haven’t seen this in a while, here’s a version you might enjoy. 

Abbott and Costello perform the classic "Who's on first?" baseball sketch in their 1945 film "The Naughty Nineties" first performed as part of their stage act.
