Whilst trying to save a ball from going out of bounds during Monday’s Houston-Minnesota game, Luis Scola accidentally hit T-Wolves forward Kevin Love right in the bean bag with the ball, sending Love to the floor in obvious pain.
I’m not sure what’s funnier—Love getting nailed in the groin with a basketball, or the announcer referring to the fallen Minnesota player’s testicles as his “Love Stomach.” I sure hope this euphemism for testes catches on, because it will ease the uncomfortableness of telling my doctor about the swelling and discoloration I frequently get in my “Love Stomach.”
Watching someone get hit in the crotch with an object will never not be funny to me.
