Jack Morris & the Terry-Cloth Solution

Presented without comment, from the October 22, 1990, issue of Sports Illustrated. Here’s a screengrab of the third paragraph of Sally Jenkins’ piece:

The attitude of athletes such as [Jack] Morris, the Detroit Tigers’ pitcher—who two months ago told a female reporter, “I don’t talk to people when I’m naked, especially women, unless they’re on top of me or I’m on top of them”—is the kind normally associated with crustaceans and other lower forms of life.

(And I was actually looking for something nice to say about Jack Morris when I found that!)

About Larry Granillo

Larry Granillo has been writing Wezen Ball since 2008 and has dealt with such touchy topics as Charlie Brown's baseball stats and Ferris Bueller's day off. In 2010, he got the bright idea to time every home run trot in baseball; he has been missing ever since.
