Words from the prophet

Really awesome interview with Andy Van Slyke on Yahoo sports.
Q: Where does "eyewash" come from?

AVS: I don't know the term "eyewash."

Q: Didn't you just say it?

AVS: I did. I don't know where the term came from. I guess it's just a nice way, a politically correct way, of saying that a guy is being disingenuous.

Q: You shouldn't do that with cops, Andy.

AVS: I thought it was a funny line.
This leaves no wonder as to why Van Slyke was pretty much everybody's favorite player back in the day.
