Quote of the Day: Tim Lincecum was really, really ready for his champagne shower

Loved the postgame interview with Tim Lincecum last night:

Comcast SportsNet reporter: Are you ready for your champagne shower?

Lincecum: F— yeah.

Hey, it was a human moment so who cares, right?  The Associated Press, that’s who.  Check out their description of it. And really, this is the whole story:

In the excitement of the celebration of the San
Francisco Giants’ NL West title, pitcher Tim Lincecum uttered an on-air
profanity.

During a
postgame interview Sunday on Comcast Sports Net Bay Area, the two-time
NL Cy Young Award winner was asked whether he was ready for a champagne
shower.

He then responded with the profanity.

I understand that the AP stories go into family newspapers no one reads anymore and everything, but if you’re not even going to hint at what word he used, why bother? I mean, it’s the one piece of information anyone interested in this story would want to know, yet it’s also the one piece of information not provided.

I try to keep things mostly clean around here, but if a prude like me can get by with an F and some dashes, you’d think the AP could.
