Former ballplayers Jay Bell and Jose Canseco make a conversational cameo in Joe Rogan's podcast with the Black Keys. Drummer Patrick Carney recalls an A+ story.

Patrick Carney Jay Bell Baseball Story

Patrick Carney reminds us not to get too full of ourselves, starring Jose Canseco and Jay Bell.

The Black Keys sat down with Joe Rogan about a million years ago before the entire world shut down.

Warning: they use swear words.

I come back to this clip about once a month for a laugh.

Baseball is never too far removed from the important lessons of life.
