‘You’re my boy, Joe!’

NEW YORK—Not sure if the Rays’ TV guys blanketed the airwaves with it or not, but Will Ferrell was in the house yesterday and shown on the stadium scoreboard about a hundred times.

Apparently he spent a little time heckling Joe Maddon from the expensive seats behind the Rays’ dugout, as well. The only thing was, Maddon didn’t realize who was doing the yelling. Obviously, he doesn’t take the time to seek out everyone heckling him, especially in New York.

“I heard somebody yelling; I didn’t know it was him,” Maddon said today. “If I knew it was him, I definitely would have turned around.”

So what sort of things was Ferrell yelling?

“‘Hey Joe Maddon – I know you can hear me,’ something like that,” said Maddon. “It was pretty much that. If somebody at least had poked me and said it’s Ferrell, I would have turned around. I’d have been honored to have been heckled by him – I just didn’t know. Identify yourself next time.”
