Derek Holland was nothing more than just another Texas Rangers pitcher before he won our hearts during the 2011 World Series with his impression of Will Ferrell’s impression of legendary Chicago Cubs announcer Harry Caray. Some would say that he also showed that he’s a pretty good pitcher, too, but I was too busy watching the St. Louis Cardinals win the World Series. However, I’ll go back and check out my DVD to see if they have any highlights of Holland’s pitching.
Anywho, as we get ready to tip toe into Spring Training with pitchers and catchers reporting, Holland and his whispy perv-o mustache are back in our lives as he stopped by News 8 in Dallas to hang out with meteorologist Pete Delkus, as they delivered the local forecast last Friday. Holland, or “The Dutch Oven” as he’s awesomely known, studied communications at Wallace State Community College in Alabama, so if he hadn’t found success as an ace for a notoriously crappy pitching team, he always had his meteorology dreams to fall back on.
