This is a classic, if only for the crystal clear audio from Bob Davidson. Also, Charlie blows a fuse, screams a hole in Davidson’s face, and is stirred on by the crowd, whose applause only grows more thunderous as he lets his anger flow through him…

Charlie was a good interview, because he could take sugary, Phillies PR-approved crowd questions and say something like “…it really takes the glitter out of my day.”
