Chase Utley is many things. He’s hardworking, talented, professional, philanthropic, and kinda handsome, if you’re into the Pat Riley hairdo.

But above all else, he’s boring. I have a friend who used to work for the World Wide Leader who told me once that Utley was the worst interview she’s ever done.

Here’s how Jimmy Rollins explains Utley’s conversational style:

“[H]e talks and says what he has to say. But it’s all done in Chase-way. And we all understand it.”

Utley just isn’t much of a talker. And that’s what’s made this afternoon’s World Series Championship parade so surprising.

For the second time this year, Utley dropped the F-bomb.


“World champions. World (f-bomb) champions.”

Chase Utley is the quiet man no more.

And the crowd is stunned for about a millisecond, and then gives him the biggest cheer of all.

F-ing awesome.

Hat tip to The 700 Level.
