    In Times Like These, The Nation Turns Its Lonely Ears
    to the One and Only Johnny Damon


    Johnny Damon speaks to the mediatoday in Tampa following A-Rod's presser: "Yeah he did some bad things. He took a steroid. Definitely do not condone that, at all, but therecould be a lot worse things he could have been doing out there. He hasn't done a crime. So there's worse things that he could have done but you knowI've known Alex since he was 15 and he's always been super nice to me and so I'm going to support him and try help him through this time.(Reporter: Johnny, what would have been worse?) Murdering someone... There'splenty of things that could be worse than what he did. (Reporter: In your mind, is what he did cheating?) For part time in his career, perhaps, butyou know what, the pitchers that were facing him too at the time were doing it."

    Anyway, this was easily the best part of yesterday's press conference.

    The actual clip is much funnier than just reading the quote because of the awkward "um's" and pauses after he says, "Murdering someone." [​IMG]

    His abysmal grammar is humorous, as well.

    Yeah, he isn't great at public speaking...always wondered if it relates to that concussion he had several years ago

    I think that's what usually happens. A person is extremely intelligent and well-spoken up until they suffer a concussion and then immediatelyturn into a dumb ##%.
