Alex Gordon Busts His Own Balls
It's a lesson from America's Funniest Home Videos: Getting hit in the nuts is tears - streaming-down-your-cheeks funny. It just is. Scenes depicting testicular trauma probably make up 30 percent of all YouTube views. So when left fielder Alex Gordon - perhaps fatigued from playing six extra innings - fouled a 15th-inning pitch right into his executive committee on May 16, laughter was a natural reaction. Judging by Gordon's reaction - hopping around and crumpling into a crouch - he might have forgotten to wear a cup. So we couldn't blame him for grounding out on the next pitch and ending the game.
