Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

This Sunday, I bought a box of popsicles and ended up eating six of them that night, which seemed like overkill at the time. Indians manager Terry Francona made me feel better when he revealed he ate 17 in one night.

Via Ryan Lewis of, Francona almost barfed from all the grape fruit bars he ate:

“I had 17 the other night. No, that’s not a lie. They’re healthy, so if one’s good, 17’s gotta be real good. I woke up in the middle of the night and I was like borderline, like it was coming up. But I was so tired that I just laid there for about an hour and I was like, ‘Don’t throw up, don’t throw up, don’t throw up.’ I I should have got up and threw up. And then I woke up in the morning and I was like, ‘****’. So I started counting the sticks. They’re so good. Obviously I don’t get tired of them. They’re so ******** good.”

“Because Brandon took over nine boxes and there’s six in each box. There’s one box left. So I don’t know what I’m going to do tonight. They’re good, man. And they have them on the plane, too. When the lady comes by with a basket I just grab the basket like, ‘I’ll handle this.’


Sounds like a wild night out for Tito.
