ESPN's DUMBEST STAT EVER

    Just aired an info box noting the four walk-off homers Mariano Rivera has surrendered in his career. Fair enough.

    At the bottom there's a little bullet point with the words All came on the road.

    Really? I had no idea. I thought Mo had given up walk-offs at Yankee Stadium. In the top of the 9th or 10th or 12th. The team that hit it was so happy it left the field and the umpires were so shocked they declared the game over.

    Walk-off whatever should be banned, and ESPN sucks giant hairy donkey balls.

    I love the term walk-off. But I also love when people try to make things so much smarter than they are.

    Especially when some people at WWL call game-winning touchdowns "walk-off" touchdowns. Ugh.

    Someone needs to take the term walk-off and use it in a bar setting...you know, when the person you flirt with as last call begins ends up in your bed. "Yup. Got a walk-off lay."

    That can only be used once she begins her walk of shame.

    Announcer: "And what a clutch move by BYH in the bar tonight."
    Color Commentator: "That's right, Biff. Another walk-off lay. Just when you thought all hope was lost, he was able to swoop in and nail home the victory."

    And then you get home, and the closer blows it.
