“Hey guys, hemorrhoids the size of plums are no laughing matter.”
The MLB Fan Cave finalists were being treated to a little instruction on how to pine tar a bat by current Royals players Jeff Francoeur and Alex Gordon, when the duo started busting on Kansas City HOFer George Brett and his infamous pine tar incident. Next thing everyone knows, Brett comes out of the dugout runway in a huff, claiming he received a phone call alerting him to the mocking he was receiving at the hands of Francouer and Gordon. In mock anger he berated Gordon, saying he’s only had two good years, before turning on Francoeur and letting him know that after the year he had he should spend more time in the batting cage hitting off a tee. Brett finally lets everyone in on the joke with a maniacal laugh that would even scare the Joker.
Gordon and Francoeur had to have known that Brett was only kidding, because any man who spends most of spring training detailing how he poops his pants on a fairly regular basis probably wouldn’t get too upset over being ribbed about a pine tar incident that took place some 30 years ago.
