POSTGAME BANALITY

2

Here in Chicago the White Sox entered the game tonight 6 back of the Tigers for the division lead and 4 back of the Twins in the wild card race. A.J. Pierzynski hits a grand slam to carry the White Sox to a victory over the Tigers. A.J. is the postgame interview. The first question from the reporter?

“How much did you need this win?”

I kid you not.

How athletes find the restraint and refrain from grabbing these reporters and/or shaking and choking them is beyond me. How much did you need this win? This guy does not belong in the third market.

He should be in somewhere like, oh I don’t know…St. Louis. Zing.

    I always wanted to be an MLB player if for no other reason than to answer reporters questions the way everyone wants them to be answered.

    “Tell us about the homerun.”

    Real answer: ‘I was just looking for a pitch to drive and I got a good swing on it and fortunatley it went out. I was just trying to get a good pitch to hit.’

    What they want to say:’What is there to say? The moron left the pitch up and when you do that in this league I’m going to crush it everytime. What, do you think I’m stupid? I’ve been taught to hit pitches like that all day. I knew it was gone when I hit it, and if he does it again I’m taking him to the cleaners again.’

    “How do you feel about the win today?”

    Real answer: ‘Well, I mean it feels good, you know? I am thankful that our team pulled it together. Tip your hat to that clubhouse over there, they are a good team and it’s tough to see them fight so hard. But I am glad that we came out on top.’

    What they want to say: “Are you for real? How does it feel? How do you think it feels, moron? I have given up everything dear to me in the hopes of standing here one day and you ask me how it feels? I damn well better feel good. I’m getting the trophy, the money and the honeys and then I’m sending a letter to everyone who doubted me. Then I’m gonna take that microphone and teach you what it means to ask a stupid question.’
