I am a girl. I read the sports pages.

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.

    Thats odd–I saw one this morning on mlb.com where Randy Johnson said, “In the fourth inning, all [heck] broke loose. I don’t have an explanation for it.”

    Maybe he said Hell?

    noooooooo not
    double hockey sticks? My ears—my vigin ears.
    Please. I think we can handle hell and fart.

    Spam? I love it! I’m having spam, spam, spam, egg, baked beans and spam! …Oh, sorry, had a flashback to high school, when that was cool. Heh.

    I noticed that Mr. “might be calling you fat anonymous” was from the UK, so I couldn’t resist checking out the url. Well, guess what? You can not only lose weight without drugs, exercise, counting calories or starving, (wow!) you can ALSO quit smoking, stop snoring, AND get their flat to fab breast enlargement program! (I first read that as FAT to fab breast enlargement and considered turning my tummy into an additional set…how popular would I be??) Anyway, you can also sell the info on the internet…for PROFIT! I’m not [kidding] you.

    I believe his actual quote was “I’m very disappointed, I made an egregious baseball faux pas”.
    They always dumb down the athletes to make the rest of us feel better.
