The Best of Ron Washington's Foul-Mouthed Pep Talk


Motherfucker loves saying motherfucker.

Today released the locker room pep talk Texas Rangers' manager Ron Washington gave his team prior to Game 7 of the World Series.

Washington may not be much of a motivational speaker (the Rangers went on to easily fold by a score of 2-6 and lose the series), but he can always find work as a blue comedian.

Here are a few choice excerpts:

Washington on the Cardinals: "We can play this motherfucking game. Ain't no doubt about it. And we can beat those motherfuckers over there. No doubt about it. And I can tell you this: They're over there saying the same motherfucking thing. Why? Because they're champions, too. And we're motherfucking champions. And we know we can beat those cocksuckers. They're not so sure of beating us."

Washington on Chris Carpenter: "They think because they're pitching Carpenter their ass is fucking okay. I just came out of that fucking press conference and all they want to fucking talk about is Carpenter. And you know what I said? Fuck, Carp. ...Those cocksucker asked me if I thought we were going to work his fucking pitch count because he's on three days rest. You know what I told those cocksuckers? If he pitches balls and all across the plate we're, going to knock the shit of of them. That's what I told them. I said shit. [Laughter from players.] I swear that's what I told them. We're not going up there to fucking build his pitch count up. So I just wanted to give you that tip."

Washington channeling the Three Musketeers: "Remember: All for one and one for all. And you got that attitude right there there's a a lot of motherfucking strength."
