And Now A Word About Ken Griffey Jr.'s Scrotum


We usually don't need an excuse to visit C. Trent Rosecrans' blog at Cincinnati.com; the chance to gaze at the best-dressed baseball columnist in the land is usually reason enough! But Wednesday's offering is must-reading for everyone, because Ken Griffey Jr. — in his farewell to baseball for this season — gives us the quote of the year. Men, we suggest wearing a cup before reading further. (But then, we always suggest that).

In describing the abdominal injury he suffered against the Giants on Tuesday, Griffey said: "The best way I can describe it is it felt like somebody bungee jumped off my right nut." Wow. Step off, George!

You know what happens with stories like this. It won't be long before some adventurous idiot actually tries it.
