Sonoran Hot Reads: Ray Smith wins Arizona’s Lip Sync Battle

Down goes Medel

NCAA Baseball: College World Series-Arizona vs Oklahoma State Steven Branscombe-USA TODAY Sports

Sonoran Hot Reads has become more like Sonoran Hot Watches recently, but here’s another one. Noted lip syncer and RHP Robby Medel is apparently challenging all of Arizona Athletics to Lip Sync Battles as the fad returns to the mainstream (I thought it was the best when Ted, Janitor and Turk were doing it on Scrubs). Medel’s first opponent was basketball player Ray Smith, and Smith dominated, busting out Roses by Outkast and Don’t Stop Believin’ while Medel went with Mr. Brightside and Gangster’s Paradise.

Robby told me the other day that there are a lot more of these to come, hopefully with a live crowd in the videos as well to make them more lively
