Kumar Rocker destroys Duke and I nearly die laughing

In which I share a funny moment with myself.

Scrolling through the morning’s news on my iPhone this morning, and I see this headline:

Rocker saves Vandy’s year with no-hitter, 19 K’s

I don’t follow college baseball, so I don’t know the players, but my first thought was “I wonder if this is John Rocker‘s kid?” So I started reading the article. The giggling began when I got to the seventh word:

Vanderbilt coach Tim Corbin worried when Kumar Rocker came off the mound after a first inning when the freshman pitcher hit Duke center fielder Kennie Taylor with a pitch near the left eye.

Kumar Rocker?


Then I saw the guy’s picture and watched the post-game interview.

This class act – John Rocker‘s kid?


Hoo boy. That was a good one.

Sometimes I just slay myself.
