Nyjer Morgan talks national TV F-bombs

Posted on: October 8, 2011 5:32 pm
 
The F-bomb Heard 'Round the Baseball World boomeranged back to Milwaukee outfielder Nyjer Morgan on Saturday as the Brewers and Cardinals prepared for Game 1 of the NLCS on Sunday, and Morgan had one reaction: Sorry.

"Honestly, I didn't even realize the mic was right there on me," said Morgan, who dropped two very audible F-bombs on TBS field reporter Sam Ryan during Friday's postgame interview following Milwaukee's dramatic Game 5 win over Arizona. "I was sorry for the nation. You know, I am a role model out here."

With that thought, Morgan stopped and let out a big belly laugh.

"I'm serious, I am a role model and kids hear that and I don't condone it, but I was caught up in the moment, man," he continued. "That doesn't happen to everybody. So I'm sorry for that. Next time I'll think about it before I spit it out. Yeah."

What will he say next time?

"I don't know," he said. "'All right!' I'll give a Tiger Woods fist bump."

Meanwhile, someone asked Zack Greinke, Milwaukee's Game 1 starter, his impression of Morgan.

"Ninety-five percent of the time, he's great," Greinke said. "Everybody else probably likes him 100 percent of the time. But every now and then, he talks too much for me and gets annoying.

"But I tell him that. Everyone on the team loves him. He has a good heart, and he's fun."

Hey, wait a second, this is Nyjer Morgan isnt it! I mean the real Nyjer Morgan! Only he would be retarded enough to think he could place himself in the Pantheon with greats such as LaRussa, MacGwire or the great Yadier Molina. That dude is a joke, he'll be playing for the Reds in a few years and get crushed like all the rest of em. Point given, point taken by whatever retardedly obese Brewers fan this is, and end of story. BAM!

The guys in the production truck must have been asleep. There is a little button to block out audio for just these times. All of the major networks work on a delay, I would think TBS does too.

That is probably the last dude on earth anybody wants to be a role model for their kids.

I totally agree with you STLcominatcha, everyone on this earth needs better role models. For instant, Yadier Molina who loses his temper at a drop of a strike call and spits on an ump. Or maybe the magnificent Tony LaDouchebag who whines about every little thing that doesn't go his way. Oh yeah, he's a drunk driver too. Let's see, maybe the cheater Mark McGwire who shot syringe after syringe of steroids into his ass. He would make a cool role model, even if he doesn't have any chance of getting into the hall of fame. A hothead spitter, a drunk driver, and a cheater. I bet your mother would be proud.

Do you know how many people in the history of baseball have hit .300 in a season- you must not watch baseball dumbass...  He is a complete idiot just like Zambrano and guys like that need to be locked up, not playing professional baseball.
YES THIS IDIOT HAD NOT DONE A DAMN THING!!!!!!


First of all, calm down, no name calling on this board, if it happens again I will report you...

Second of all, yeah a bunch of guys have hit .300 (Gary Matthews Jr., Endy Chavez, yada yada), but when it happens it's special for that ballplayer, unless they're Tony Gwynn or Ichiro or something. It means they had a career year and maxed out in terms of their ability and potential. And anytime it happens, yeah, they helped their team a whole lot.

And btw, when did Zambrano ever break the law? When did T-Plush ever break the law? They're just guys with some control issues? You know, you seem to have control issues at least behind your computer, how would you like it if we locked you up. And cursing on the world wide web isn't much better than what Morgan did. You're a giant hypocrite and I loathe sports fans like you, who somehow miss the fact that athletes are people just like you and me

Trust me... Nyjer Morgan is not my hero, not even close.  I know grown men curse and get excited when they win, but no one else has really acted like him.  I guess you also think it was all right for him to throw his chew at Chris Carpenter too?

Its not THAT big of a deal, and I would imagine many of us do the same thing from time to time.  But when my 5 year old son and I are sitting here watching, I'm not crazy about him hearing it from a national TV program.  Although I do it myself (when he's not right by my side) and curse words are in just about every PG-13 movie these days.
