Quote of the year

NEW YORK -- This one deserves a post of its own. Ladies and gentlemen: Craig Stammen, on Tyler Clippard's MLB-leading seven wins...

"I asked if I could start wearing his underwear. But he said no."

There's no appropriate response to that. I'll just let it stand on its own merits.

Underwear that stands on its own, is really old underwear. No wonder Clippard has to raise his glove hand so high.

Mark, I should have added that one of your many gifts as a sportswriter is your sense of humor. I hope the Nats can learn to appreciate it.

Its the specs not the top secret underwear?

I doubt wearing Tyler's underwear would help Craig,
but maybe it would....briefly.

There's superstition for you! And once the brand of underwear is identified, I imagine Clip has a new endorsement deal.

BG said...

Boxers or briefs?

Carl in 309: Lemme see, the ad copy for such an endoresement, "Get your #@++* in gear, Clip's jocks are here! Seriously, ESPN has reported that the former Yankee Clipper is on pace for a 33 win season!

Going past the pace of Elroy Face! Go CLIP!
