Phrasing and word choice are everything, and Matt Stairs proved that to be true back in 2008.
Towards the end of his career, Stairs became a pinch-hitter with out of the park power. He only had 17 regular season at-bats with the Phillies in 2008, so when he hit a game-winning bomb in the playoffs, Stairs was rather emotional:
When you get that nice celebration coming into the dugout and you’re getting your ass hammered by guys — there’s no better feeling than to have that done.
See? Couldn’t he have just talked about camaraderie and brotherhood?
Instead, he comes off as a dude who craves a dick up his bunghole. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but phrasing and word choice are everything.
