Coco Crisp makes exceptional catch in Game 3 of ALDS

Oct 9, 2012, 10:11 PM EDT

Oakland’s Coco Crisp failed to haul in a fly ball in center field in Game 2 of the ALDS on Sunday afternoon at Detroit’s Comerica Park, allowing the Tigers to tack on two runs in an eventual 5-4 Detroit victory. But the speedster just leapt out of the doghouse in the second inning of ALDS Game 3 tonight at O.Co Coliseum:

The A’s lead 1-0 heading into the bottom of the fourth inning. They’re down 2-0 in the five-game series.

    Nice catch, Covelli. You’re not an usuk anymore. Now hit a homer and put this thing out of reach.

      Very nice usage of the word usuk in a sentence. A++ for you. And yes, it was a nice catch. He timed it perfectly. It looked like he might lose his glove with the ball for a second there.

        Pity Yunel Ecobar didn’t know that word. If he’d had THAT on his eye black…well we’d have had an entirely different controversy. And probably a better one, too.

        If Yunel had an Inuit dialect on his eye black, I would have been impressed regardless of what it said.

        8th inning. Come on, A’s.

    Oakland must push this to 5 games. Detroit must be forced to run veer lander out there again.

    Cur- I’ve got a fairly extensive vocabulary. Admittedly, I didn’t know what “usuk” was. That it wasn’t capitalized had me confused, too. So, I went to Merriam. She didn’t know either. Eventually, I googled it. I was disappointed to finally see the rather obscure anime reference. I couldn’t wait to come back here to tell you that usuk (j/k).

      Brush up on your Inuit, Randy. Endless scope for invective.

    definition of a word usuk, means: dick / penis, in word of inuit language in Greenland

    • cur68 - Oct 9, 2012 at 10:58 PM

      In fact, according to an absolutely unimpeachable source, its from the Siglitun and North Baffin dialects of the Inuit language. Next time you get cut off in traffic, you’ll have some additional invective.

        Why did I think you lived in the vicinity of Toronto? But that is very useful info, thanks!

    Maybe Brett Anderson was just too dazzling for these Tigers.

      Whoops. Posted to wrong thread.
