Today I Am A Changed Man

by Nick Vitrano

I don’t know what it is, but videos of guys being nailed in the fellas are always funny…always!  If you've watched America's Funniest Home Videos lately (yeah, it's still on), basically the whole show is video after video of balls, bats, bike frames, golf clubs, kids' fists...whatever...meeting the groinal region of an unsuspecting man.  It's the laugh formula.  Unless it's you, it's funny.  Like Homer Simpson once said, contest over:


At least that’s what I used to think.


I’m actually amazed the ump displayed the reaction time he did.  He almost got out of the way.  Or did he move more directly into the path?  Hmm.  Either way, this marks a banner day in my human development.  Once a passionate participant in the perceived humor of this scenario, I vow this day to turn over a new leaf and stand in fervent defiance of this ball on ball crime.  It...must...end.
