You know what's really special about cussin'? For many of us, they transcend mere language, and ought to be considered as a reflex. Consider Mr. Feldman here. A batted ball is coming right at his face at roughly 100 miles per hour, meaning it goes from the bat to the mound in roughly 0.4 seconds. Within that time-space, all responses are instinctive and base-level. He doesn't move out of the way. He only turns his head and lets out half a cuss.
Thank the God it didn't actually hit him. Hell of a blue-ribbon GIF right here.
(16) DAVID ROSS.
David Ross is the most Journeyman Platoon Catcher in the game today. He doesn't have a house. His catcher's vest folds out into a pup tent. All he needs is two trees and a rope, and he's got a roof over his head. He actually isn't even paid in cash money. He just wants trail mix and clean socks.
But Hell-fire if that ain't the sorriest throw to second I've ever seen. No trail mix for that one, pal. You get knockoff peanut M&Ms. Like, the crappy ones that are already like 50 percent crumbs. No packaging, either. They'll just dump a handful into that dented lid-less tin cup that's always clanging against your belt and has PROPERTY OF ROSS spray-stenciled on the side. Look, man, I'm trying to call you a hobo draft-dodger without just coming out and calling you a hobo draft-dodger and it's difficult.
