Gio Gonzalez was the star of the night with six scoreless innings pitched and a home run under his belt (see video here). But it was his postgame interview that had Twitter buzzing. MASN broadcaster Bob Carpenter asked Gonzalez about the difficulties of pitching in low temperatures, and the Nats’ lovable pitcher came up with this gem.

“It was definitely difficult, especially with this cold weather,” he said. “It was tough to get a grip. I felt like I was making love to my hand. Just one of those things where I was constantly trying to find some grip, somehow, some way. The rosin bag, whatever, licking the fingers. But it felt good after that.”
