Sometimes you say things and they just are taken the wrong way. This might be one of those times. Reds Brandon Phillips tried his best to describe the pep talk that Manager Brian Price gave them to inspire a 2-1 comeback. Here is what he said word for word:
“He was like, ‘Come on, guys. Y’all know we can do this. We can do this. Let’s stand up for Cincinnati,’” Phillips said sarcastically. “He didn’t say that. He was cussing. He was gettin’ all in our butt and it felt good, you know, in a good way. You know what I’m saying?”
I know what he was trying to say, but it was just worded poorly. Perhaps he was just excited about the win. Or about coach being all up in their butts. One of the two.
