Tweet of the Day: Coco Crisp explains how pink eye feels

Sep 26, 2012, 2:44 PM EDT

Coco Crisp appeared in last night’s game off the bench as a pinch-runner, but he’s still unable to hit or play defense because of a nasty case of pink eye that he’s had for going on two weeks.

Today he gave an update via Twitter:

Sounds about right. Rrrr

    “Its so frustrating have this pink I crap”
    This statement made me laugh out in the middle of my work….damn you Coco Crisp

    Since I don’t tweeter or anything…is it a new-fangled language to abbreviate eye as “I”? I mean, he clearly knows it’s about his eye. Is it a character limitation thing? I’ve always been a complete word texter….

    Also, I would have thought apple had trademarked a pink iCrap as proprietary or something.

      yes, it is a character limitation thing.

        In that case, it’s kinda funny he abbreviates one of the shortest words in his whole post, saving himself 2 whole letters so he can say “frustrating”, “picture” (twice) and throw in “Rrrr” at the end.

        Rr just didn’t have the same impact as Rrrr, eye suppose.

    I always thought pink eye was something children typically get.
    My 5 year old daughter has had it twice already this school year.
    She missed two days of school the 1st time and 3 days the next.
    It is so contagious the school will send them home immediately if they suspect it.

        South Park reference

      This is freaking me out. I made a South Park reference today in a later posting and I swear on my Cooperstown Hall of Fame book (my bible) that I didn’t see this first. Are you my subconscious?

      Awesome reference. Love Cartman.

    Oh, poor Coco. You have no chance to survive. Make your time.
