A collection of the best words uttered about the photos of Nats pitching coach Steve McCatty in Playgirl.
“Utter joy. This is the best day of my life.” – Tyler Clippard, while wearing a T-shirt that the pitchers had made using the photo.
“It’s pretty incredible. It’s a perfect T-shirt, and what a picture. It’s one of the better T-shirts I’ve seen in the eight years I’ve seen them made.” – Ryan Zimmerman on 106.7 The Fan, about where the shirt falls in the rankings of Nats clubhouse T-shirts.
“I threw up. I sent out a big group text to everyone. I think Cat’s pretty embarrassed.” – Jordan Zimmermann, on his reaction to the photos.
“I could have done without that revelation. If you had asked me who that was, I could not have figured it out. If I had 100 years, I couldn’t figure out who that was. There’s been a big change in the last 30 years. I didn’t know he had that good a body, and I didn’t know he had that much hair.” – Davey Johnson
“I took a glimpse of the picture. When they say a picture is worth a thousand words, that one is worth a couple of thousand.” – Mike Rizzo during a call with 106.7 The Fan. Rizzo also said he would wear his McCatty T-shirt proudly.
“I took the picture.” Steve McCatty, who is taking responsibility for the ’80’s-tastic photos.
