Joe Girardi manages to conduct an entire press conference with nothing but trite phrases and cliches

From the Wait 'til this Year Humor Vault

NEW YORK--Yankees manager Joe Girardi is the envy of managers around the majors after accomplishing a difficult and much sought-after feat: he managed to speak solely in cliches and meaningless phrases during his post-game press conference after a loss to the Kansas City Royals.

When asked if he was surprised the game played out as it did despite the fact that the Yankees were heavy favorites going into it, he replied, "You don't play the game on paper. Having said that, I think we left everything on the field. At the end of the day, we have to remember to play within ourselves."

Speaking with regard to the Yankees' comeback attempt in the late innings, Girardi said, "There are no moral victories. They made the big plays and we didn't. We'll just have to put this loss behind us and continue to take it one game at a time."

Girardi left the press room but then suddenly peeked out from behind the side wall and added, "Something had to give!" and then left. As Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez prepared for his interview, Girardi was just plain showing off as he popped his head in again and said, "You win as a team, you lose as a team," then left again.
