The most awful part comes after he falls the first time and they catcher runs past him in the attmeped run-down and you just *know* he's gonna score and make the ESPN Top Ten Plays, BUT he falls AGAIN and gets tagged.
Herer's the worst part: I was watching the game in the basement(taking cover from a nasty storm) when the satellite went out with Cust at the plate. I braved Channel 11's news upstairs on broadcast where they didn't even mention Cust's faux paux. I didn't know until Sunday morning.
I feel bad for Jack, because they pay him to hit, not run, well.
"Each time I've met Huffington, I wondered if she was not somehow the long-lost daughter of Madame Nicolai Ceaucescu, or a genetic cross between Martha Stewart and Count Dracula.
