I'm Back! With This Important Message About ... Piles

The White Sox are playing the Kansas City Royals now in pre-season action. The camera just took a shot of hall of famer George Brett, who is working now as a batting coach for the Royals.

Every time I see George Brett on TV or hear his name, I'm reminded of my favorite story about hemorrhoids.

You probably don't recall, but in October 1980, when Brett was playing for the Royals and flirted with a .400 average that season, and the Royals were playing the Phillies in the World Series, Brett was having a big 'roid flareup -- and not in the sense that 'roid has taken to mean today in baseball.

I read a story somewhere, I don't remember where (probably a Playboy interview), where Brett was telling his teammates about the problem and described it this way:

"You know how some guys like it when his girlfriend sticks her finger up his asshole while they're having sex? Put it this way. I won't be trying that anytime soon."


(True story.)
