WEEKEND BONUS: NOT ACCIDENTAL

The Yankees' decision to import Taiwanese superstar Chien-Ming Wang in 2005 has been a bonanza for puerility, giving us headlines like "Lee beats Wang in duel of perfect pitchers" or "Reds beat Wang" (which conjures images of masturbating Communists, and I really dread the kind of Google-search traffic I'm going to get with the phrase "masturbating Communists")

If sportswriters weren't doing this intentionally, I wouldn't have seen those headlines 101763916 times in the past 3 years.

    It is very similar to the massive enjoyment that the media got when Rudy Gay was the star of the NCAA tournament. The winning quote of course going to Rick Majerus: "I'm not a big gay guy".

    Even funnier since he injured himself…. running.

    My personal favorite, and one that I think proves your suspicion these are no accident:

    "Yankees Win, Lose A-Rod, Wang."

    Now, if I'm trying to avoid the obvious phallic implication, there's no way I use just the comma to separate the names.
