Nationals Gio Gonzalez on Pitching 6 Scoreless Innings: “I Was Making Love to My Hand”
Sometimes, you are trying to find the perfect words to explain what is going on and fail miserably. It has happening to the best of us.
Including our friend Gio Gonzalez, who pitched six scoreless and hit a home run and was asked how did it feel to pitch in such cold conditions.
Here is what he had to say via SI Hot Clicks.
“It was definitely difficult, especially with this cold weather,” he said. “It was tough to get a grip. I felt like I was making love to my hand. Just one of those things where I was constantly trying to find some grip, somehow, some way. The rosin bag, whatever, licking the fingers. But it felt good after that.”
I believe that’s the same phrase was uttered by Beavis and Butthead.
