Is it that hard to turn on the water?

Obviously no is accusing anyone of anything here. Absolutely nothing.

But after using a public bathroom is it too difficult to wash your hands afterward. Really, it's a little gross when it doesn't happen and even worse when people notice. Seriously, I am trying not to think about men who don't wash their hands after shaking their, well, you know.

This is from my favorite Yankees blog by Journal News beat writer Pete Abraham. It's easily the best blog of any beat, not just the Yankees. Pete does a great job of not only reporting on the game, but bringing fans behind the scenes to get a glimpse of what it's like to be a beat writer.

This is what we learned today:

UPDATE, 3:50 p.m.: If you remember nothing else from
this blog remember this: Never shake hands with Tim McCarver if you see him
coming out of a bathroom. That’s all I’m going to say. Just don’t.

Again, we're not accusing anyone of anything. But, WTF? He's touching things in the broadcast booth. He's touching the mic that the techies have to get afterward. He's eating in the media room, shaking hands with (not so much) respectable people around Boston. All after, touching himself. (Gosh, that just sounds wrong)

Tim, this is what a sink looks like.

But use it while using one of these. Really, it's not that difficult. I promise.


  1. Wow, this is a big pet peeve of mine.

    The sad thing is McCarver is not the only one. It's an epidemic.

  2. When I get home, I wash my hands before and after.

  3. You do NOT even want to know of the horrors that occur in men's rooms across this great land of ours.
