ESPN : GM Offers To Get Prostate Exam During Game

Andy Milovich has offered to go this week where no man has gone before: A prostate exam in front of a full stadium of fans. Milovich, the general manager of the Myrtle Beach Pelicans, the Single-A affiliate of the Texas Rangers, offered to have the exam while singing “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” during the seventh-inning stretch if local 10-year-old Fallon Emery, who has brain cancer, gets 10,000 likes on her Facebook page before the game.

“It’s not like I would be getting it at home plate,” Milovich said. “I’ll likely do it from our radio booth and the fans will see me from the shoulder up.”
. . .
The team had already planned to give out 1,000 foam fingers with blue ribbons on them to the first 1,000 men age 18 and older.

Give the radio guys a raise!
