“Whenever I get mad at the pool [behind the right center field fence in the D’back’s ballpark], I think, ‘I’ll bet that would have really pissed Ty Cobb off.’ And then I’m totally okay with it.”

(For you all you furriners and other unfortunate non-baseball fans, Brisbee is referring to the hall-of-fame, vicious, racist monster who was a disgrace to the human race, Ty Cobb. If you ever get a chance, check out the movie “Cobb,” with Tommy Lee Jones starring as Ty Cobb. It’s one of the best baseball movies ever made.)
