The sports pages often, not intentionally mind you, give me the best laughs — even moreso than the comics pages, where I only get a kick out of Zits and Foxtrot really.
Regardless, this fine Monday morning I am reading an article about the Pirates’ loss to the Phillies. There is some detailed reporting about a mistake by rookie catcher Ryan Doumit. The mistake he made is not relevant to my post. All you need to know is what Doumit said to the media regarding his mistake.
As reported in, and ellipsed (my word) by the Post-Gazette:
“A brain [cramp],” Doumit said.
I’m dying. Come on Burghers. We ALL know what Doumit REALLY said:
A brain fart.
And he said it to the media. Sports guys ROCK with their inability to censor themselves in front of the media.
