Confession: I do not like Danny Kaye. He's always gotten on my nerves in a hurry.

2) You never cease to surprise me. I would have thought you would be a Kaye groupie.

[2] He's clearly incredibly talented, I just never found him funny.

And a baseball fan; he was part owner of the Jays, wasn't he?

I know he was a big Dodgers fan.

[4] The Mariners, actually (original owner along with Lester Smith, 1977-81). He was buddies with Leo Durocher, who also toured with him with the USO a couple of months after Japan surrendered in WWII...

Absolutely a tremendous talent. Loved watching the Danny Kaye TV show as a kid.

Danny was a good actor, but brother Michael calls a better baseball game

I always loved him as Red Nichols in the "Five Pennies" and as Hans Christian Andersen. White Christmas wasn't bad either.
His wife wrote most of his material.

Love Danny Kaye. He's so ... watchable.
