Note: We’re having “Friday Fun” on Thursday this week. Look for a serious post tomorrow.

This one is dedicated to the parents out there. In this recently rediscovered clip of Mary Carillo’s rant about backyard badminton, every parent can take a moment to recall a day like this, which has certainly occurred at your house or at a house near you.

Best line? There are many, but my vote goes for, “Then you see Christopher Berg — and it’s always Christopher Berg . . .”.

Oh, just watch and enjoy!

Happy Friday! (Um, Thursday.)

If that wasn’t scripted, it was brilliant. Even if it was, it’s still one of the better sports rants (and I’ve heard many) that I’ve ever listened to.
