Note To ESPN: There Is A Significant Difference Between An "Elephant Keeper" And An "Elephant Walker"

Tony La Russa is making the post-retirement media tour, and on Monday he stopped by Late Show with David Letterman, during which he revealed a Sacramento-area animal rescue group had offered him a position as elephant keeper.

The next morning, SportsCenter reported this development, only confusing an elephant keeper (which is a person who keeps animals) with an elephant walker (which is a person participating in an elephant walk).

If you've forgotten what an elephant walk is, Mark Cuban provided us a lovely NSFW depiction of one this summer.
