Today, In Names That Make You Think Of Urine News…
The Sportress, continuing its quest of bringing you the most relevant sports news in the most sophomoric way imaginable, would like to touch on two stories fresh off the pisses. Er, presses.
In NFL news, Dean Pees stepped down from his post as defensive coordinator for the New England Patriots to “pursue other opportunities.”
Meanwhile, in tennis, Shahar Peer beat Sara Errani 6-2, 6-0 to advance to the finals at the Hobart International.
Heh. Pees. Peer. Granted, Peer isn’t as obvious of a urinary reference as Pees, but if you allow your imagination to run with it and elongate the pronunciation, you can get “Pee-er” out of it, as in, “In the animal kingdom, the ostrich is a peer without a peer.” Or something like that.
Obviously, as a native Israeli, I imagine Sharar avoided taunts as a child since “pee” likely does not mean the same thing over there, but can you imagine the hell Dean Pees went through as a youth? It had to be at least as torturous and degrading of an experience as the one suffered by a foreign exchange student from Poland I went to high school with, Piotr Poupinpanski. That poor bastard never had a chance.
