Urinal

Sometimes the headline tells the whole story. This is one of those times.

Braves-Dbacks last night, Michael Bourn late to the field, hitching up the pants.

Yup.

    Yeah, that link is wrong.

    What does the LA Times story about Pujols have to do with Michael Bourn’s “equipment malfunction” last night? Yes, Joe Simpson called it that on the air.

      When you’re slidin’ into home, and your pocket’s full of foam…

    This could be much, much worse. Ballplayers could handle these emergencies like those heathen Nascar drivers and just…. go

    I’ll take a short delay over that any day, I-thank-you.

    I’ve actually wondered how often this happens. I mean, people are people – and when you gotta go, you gotta go.

    What’s the big deal, when u gotta go u gotta go. Yes it’s funny because the inning was quicker than him doing his business, but it would have been funnier if his turn in the batting order came up.

    Did he have a Playboy or Playgirl magazine?
