White Sox television play-by-play guy Hawk Harrelson had an interesting way of describing the situation in the sixth inning. The Mariners had bases loaded with two outs. I’ve heard that the “bases are jacked” or the “bases are drunk” when describing a bases loaded situation, but I’ve never heard Harrelson’s description.
Harrelson chose to go with “[t]he sacks are packed with seamen.” Then felt the need to add Mariners in after the fact. Yes, I know that “Mariners” are guys that work in and around the sea. The immature me just had a little chuckle when I heard seamen used during a baseball broadcast.
This was after Harrelson’s rant earlier this week on umpire Mark Wegner. Harrelson has had quite a week with sound bites.
