    I'm covering a baseball game tonight. The "guest PA" announcer in the home half of the fifth is a little person, or a dwarf. (Last night the guy they chose had a speech impediment. I'm expecting the Elephant Man on Sunday).

    Anyhow, the guest announcer does his thing, and is still standing in the press box when the regular PA guy starts to hype the between-innings hocum, in this case a race in which fathers carry their kids on the back between first and third base.

    Here's the PA announcer's lead-in:

    "And now it's time for "run with the little guy."

    I almost crapped myself.
