Manny Rodriguez just appeared on Leno and actually said the phrase "Yeah, maybe I shouldn't've done that, but that's just Manny being Manny." That's right, not only does Manny know and use that phrase himself, but he uses it in such a way to remove himself even further from from referring to himself in the first person. Manny just referred to himself in the 3rd person referring to himself in the 3rd person. He referred to himself in the 6th person. I just, in that moment, achieved nirvana.
The best part was that he also congratulated himself for it, turning around and giving a very surprised Steve Carrell a fist bump. He was about ten seconds away from creating a complicated home run congratulation handshake with Leno. I can't believe we ever thought about trading this guy for A-Rod.
Note: Later that evening, Ortiz appeared on Conan and did create a complicated home run congratulation handshake with Conan. It was an adaptation of the little bow that he and Dice-K do together in the dugout, and my perfect world just got better. How great is it that our World Champion Red Sox get to be this team?
