Matt Nagy would certainly like to have this fumble back.
The Chicago Bears head coach has seemingly done everything right ever since he was hired last year. He led the Bears to their first NFC North title since 2010 and has expectations high for this season after last year ended with an unfortunate missed “double doink” field goal kick in a first-round loss to the Eagles.
Yet his most unfortunate mistake probably came at the Chicago Cubs game on Wednesday at Wrigley Field. While Nagy managed a respectable ceremonial first pitch, it was the seventh inning tradition of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” that caused the Bears head coach to have an embarrassing slip of the tongue.
When it came to the line, “buy me some peanuts or cracker jacks,” Nagy unfortunately did not say the word “peanuts.” Instead, he forgot to enunciate the “t” and said a word that is a part of the male anatomy that rhymes with peanuts.
Just listen for yourself:
Perhaps Nagy just wanted to go viral and did this on purpose. Or it was a Freudian slip. Regardless, as far as botched renditions of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” at Wrigley Field go, blurting out a part of the male anatomy is certainly something we had not heard before.
