You may have heard about the new book about the history of ESPN called “These Guys Have All The Fun”. The book is a massive tome consisting of all kinds of first-hand interviews from ESPNers past and present. It’s a damn good read, but the best parts aren’t the juicy excerpts you’ve already read in GQ or on Deadpsin, but rather moments where somebody puts their foot in their mouth by saying something totally-fucking-stupid.

Enter David Steinberg, who was one of the writers for the 1994 ESPYs, also known as that god-awful ESPN awards show neither you or anybody you know has ever watched. Steinberg came up with the brilliant idea for John Kruk, who was at this time recovering from testicular cancer, to make an appearance that was centered wholly around this one ridiculous joke:

Look, One-Nut Kruk jokes are funny now that he’s recovered, but this guy acts like Kruk is a humorless jerk-off for not wanting to make fun of a serious and potentially life-threatening disease that cost him a friggin’ testicle! Not only that, but that is a fucking awful joke. When you have to end a joke by saying “Okay? That was the joke,” you should know that it’s way unfunny.

I didn’t think it was possible, but I somehow like the Krukker more for this.
