Nyjer Morgan got Dr. Freeze off his stick

Words cannot completely convey the tenor of this interview between MASN's Jen Royle and Nyjer Morgan. It's from several days ago, but I think you'll agree that the emotions stand up over time. There are many great parts, but I suppose the best comes around 1:20. Like I said, you can't understand it from mere black-and-white lines sketched into a screen; it has to be experienced. But just in case you're unable to press play below....

(The full library of's Nyjer Morgan clips is probably worth your time.)

Royle: Talk to me about this honey zone.

Morgan: Oh well, shoot, that little honey zone, that's a little zone that everybody once in a while, they come around....I got a little honey zone, like everybody else.

Royle: And Dr. Freeze has stayed off your stick?

Morgan: Oh yeah, no, he definitely froze off....No, Dr. Freeze is gone. Kind of July to let it fly, so everything will be all good and all kosher.

Of the three people involved in my version of this interaction -- Nyjer Morgan, Jen Royle and I -- at least one, and possibly two of us had no idea what was going on. But I'm pretty sure we all liked it.

There was also this, when the subject of Morgan's 30th birthday was raised:

Morgan: You always stay 29 once.....

Royle: Trust me, good things to come in the 30s.

Morgan: Oh, I already know that. I guess I'm in my prime now.

And this, when Royle was asking about team chemistry, as if there were any other kind.

Morgan: Everybody really gets along. We go on little dinner dates and stuff with each other, stuff like that.

Royle: Bromances?

Morgan: Oh yeah, we just have fun and we enjoy each others' company.

Royle: No dinner date tonight for your birthday?

And so on and so forth. I guess leadoff hitters must always provide sparks. And his game is most definitely electric.

Was she giving him a wrister with her other hand? She seemed like a groupie more than a reporter regarding her demeanor. Can MASN PLEASE get rid of Debbie Reynolds and put this chick in there??

Also, am I the only 1 that found it surprising Nyjer thought the club house was better in PIT than in DC? How could she not follow-up on that one?!

That was slightly uncomfortable. Could she get any closer to his face?

10 bucks says he got a little action after the game. Hell, BEFORE and after the game...

I thought she did a good job. It's nice to see some personality from a reporter!! Plus she works for the team network so of course she'll be pro Nats, pro Nyjer. Figures some guy made a sexist comment. So rude. I live in Baltimore and think shes doing a great job. Glad she's here covering the Orioles!
