Big Bird, meet Bison: Matt Kemp stops by Sesame Street
From Mark Fidrych joining Big Bird on the cover of Sports Illustrated to the Bear in the Big Blue House throwing out the first pitch at Wrigley Field, MLB has had many associations with Muppets over the years. That tradition will soon continue when Matt Kemp appears on Sesame Street to learn about the word "attach" with the show's resident fairy-in-training, Abby Cadabby.
Sesame Street released a preview clip of the appearance on Tuesday and it's worth watching for several reasons. One, Abby is adorable. Two, you get to hear Matt Kemp say the words "looks like you attached sippy cups to my jersey." And three, you can try to figure out how Abby's mouth and body are moving when attached to Kemp with no obvious place for a muppeteer's hands (I can't).
Check out the preview clip below:
