Remember that little moment of levity at second base last night? The one where Sean Casey fell over, then watched his helmet tip over his eyes, then made sure everyone knew he was safe at second base?
Well, Casey was having about as much fun as it appeared he was.
“I was having a great time when I fell,” Casey reported today. “I go to Jeter, ‘Can you get an APB out on that sniper?’ He’s like, ‘Hey, Case, don’t worry about it, nobody’s watching this game tonight.’
“I go, ‘We’re not on ESPN, are we?'”
He knew, also, that he had to make that sweeping gesture with his arms that indicated he was safe at the bag — and laugh about it.
“I figure, if you can’t laugh at yourself,” he said, “who can you laugh at?”
