Major League Baseball is currently a popular topic in local sports, because this year the Detroit Tigers are actually good. They're so good, they're caps-lock, leaned over bold GOOD. For those of us who haven't seen anything out of the Tigers since 1988, it's been a pleasant change of pace.
This morning I heard the same pre-recorded sports guy on our local news. He was talking about the baseball standings, and the lead the Detroit held over the Chicago, also known as the team in second place. At the end of his baseball riff, I got very confused, because he said something that sounded exactly like, "....which gives the Tiges a six game lead over the Pale Ho's."
And all I could think of was, "WHAT? What does baseball have to do with albino hookers?"
After the third broadcast of the same story, I finally figured it out.
It wasn't Pale Ho's. It was Pale Hose.
Hose as in stockings - Pale as in white.
Pale Hose as in the Chicago White Sox.
They shouldn't be doing this to me on a Sunday morning.
