Reading this headline yesterday was the first time that I yelled a profanity in a long time.

At least it's another dollar in the A's stadium fund swear jar...

Common mistake but it's actually "Puk." P, not an F.

Damn, I find the inevitable parade of promising pitchers needing TJ surgery to be depressing. I know it's part of the game, but I always get a sinking feeling with every headline like this.

Puk? That's a funny word. Can I use that?

Puk it, why not?
