Via the brand new and most entertaining blog The Big Lead, we were pointed to an interview new New York Yankees Johnny Damon gave to New York Magazine's Stephen Rodrick. The story itself is a good read — we love the analogy of Damon sent to the Yankees to remove the collective stick from their collective asses — but the best part: When Damon discusses his sex life:

"As the conversation shifts to after-hours pursuits, Damon adds nonchalantly, "My wife wants us to put a swing in our New York place." [Jaret] Wright's eyes go wide. An oblivious Yogi wanders by with seconds from the mess table. Damon gives a naughty, kidlike shrug. "We're married; you have to keep it interesting."


Damon also, ominously, refers to his wife in the piece as a "five-tool player." Upon hearing this, we imagine Wright letting out a little "yeep!" and scampering back into the clubhouse, where he hid under a bench and shivered for a while.
