During Thursday night's crazy Dodgers-Padres brawl, Dodgers brodcaster Vin Scully has a creative term for an expletive-laced outburst by Matt Kemp: "fertilizer." Instead of repeating the word Kemp was saying during the brawl (bullsh*t, for those curious), Scully went with the unique, technical term. It's actually a tactic he has used before to communicate a player or manager spouting off expletives. In the context of a bench clearing brawl, it's fantastic. Hats off to you for being the best, Vin.
@awfulannouncing What was so classic about it? Silly "brawl" (can they even be called that when there is no fighting?)
@awfulannouncing Reminds me of Al Michaels calling the Ravens' "bullshit" chant calling it "the loudest manure chant I've ever heard."
@awfulannouncing That's Fertilizer.
