always good for a laugh

Imagine yourself as a pitcher facing the New York Yankees. You're 24 years old, and it's a tie game 0-0, in the top of the second. You have a runner on first, and a full count to the Yankee catcher Jorge Posada.

And then...

Your protective cup slides down your pants. Your jock is now protecting your kneecap, which would be ok, but it's sorta a tough situation and you really don't need the jock-down-the-pants as a distraction while you pitch.

So you call time. You call your manager out. You tell him the situation. This is his reaction.

Good times. For video evidence of the situation, click here. Scroll to about the 30 minute mark in the game (top of second, 2 out, 3-2 count). If this link doesn't work, you can try the archives (if you know how to navigate them) and access the highlight from the game on the 14th of April between the Yankees and the Twins.

Good times.
