White Sox television broadcaster Ken "Hawk" Harrelson has always told it like it is.
Harrelson is notorious for sharing his opinions without having a filter, and it shouldn't be a shock when he says something completely off-the-wall.
It was no different on Thursday night when Harrelson was a guest on MLB Network's High Heat with Chris "Mad Dog" Russo.
Harrelson let go of some feelings he had been sitting on for almost 50 years.
"Well in ’68, it was all because of Yaz,” Harrelson said. “Over the winter I had dedicated myself to — I said, ‘I’m gonna stick it up Carl’s behind in ’68.’ And that was my motivation. I was just going to go ahead and play as hard as I could and things worked out pretty good. In fact, I was going for the Triple Crown up until I got the hemorrhoids."
Deadspin.com pointed out Harrelson hit .297 with 31 home runs and 99 RBI though Aug. 15 of the 1968 season. After a bout with hemorrhoids, Harrelson went on to hit just .219 with four home runs and 10 RBI to close out the season.
