Catering to the general public is not a good excuse to include gross inaccuracies (i.e. that Bird was the first person to think of improvising on the changes rather than the
melody). It is also not an excuse to give only half the story. Personally, I'd trade all
of this glorious tuba footage for a little more content. This was not Burns' best work (and I can say that because I play baseball, too).
