Tina Fey on Jonathan Papelbon’s Crotch-Grabbing

"Not One Thing About This Story Surprises Me"

Tina Fey was on Late Night with Seth Meyers last night and turned her attention to Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon’s crotch-grabbing antics. She didn’t comment on his seven-game suspension, but she did have some thoughts on what will happen the next time he pitches.

“I will say, not one thing about this story surprises me…. It’s a tough town…. It’s good that we don’t know exactly when he’s going to pitch again, because he is asking for it now. Like if he thinks a bunch of Philly dirtbags like me are going to be cool next — has he ever seen seven thousand people grab their crotches? Because that’s what’s going to happen. It’s going to be a crotch wave. It’s going to be the wave, but with crotches.”

Seth Meyers then asks if this is called a “Philadelphia Handshake.” No, but we should start calling it that.
