Video: The Barry Melrose ESPN Goodbye Party

Want to know how ESPN sent Barry Melrose off to Tampa Bay? They got him loaded at The Greatest Bar in Boston (clever name). Here's video, including cameos from Steve Levy, EJ Hradek, and John Buccigross courtesy of Dirty Water TV.

Don't they know he'll be back at ESPN by March?

I kid, I kid!

In all honesty, I haven't seen a sadder send off like that since Richard "Boner" Stebone left Growing Pains to join the military.

While the host, Christina White, is quite easy on the eyes (uh oh, someone might fire off a 500-word righteous diatribe now), I'm pretty sure you could have told her she was going to a party for Tiger Woods and it wouldn't have mattered.

The real going away party will be at The Bullpen in Glens Falls, NY where Barry is a cologne soaked regular.
