(Video) Here’s Joe Morgan Doing The Chicken Dance At Oktoberfest In Cincinnati

Last week, I bemoaned the fact that I was not informed about Joe Morgan being selected to lead the World’s Largest Chicken Dance at Cincinnati’s Okotberfest celebration. Well, someone in Cincy had the good sense to videotape the Reds Hall of Famer and former ESPN baseball announcer up on stage, shaking it — with fetching lasses on both sides of him, mind you — while doing the Chicken Dance. Whatever that is.

But truly, given the perception of Morgan as a curmudgeonly, opinionated blowhard, it quite the site to behold watching him dance ridiculously. Morgan conceded that he didn’t practice much for his Chicken Dance debut, only looking up how to do it on YouTube the night before. See, you would never see Dave Concepción pulling  a stunt like that — consistently preparing to maintain consistency was his hallmark, you see — and that’s what made Concepción  the remarkable player that he was. That guy could do no wrong — at least in Joe Morgan’s eyes.
