Having triggered some lower back stiffness after (struggling with? Is it better or worse if he struggled?) taking off his pants following a flight, Cubs closer Brandon Morrow is on the DL with one of those injuries that’ll always be remembered.*
And even as we recognize back issues are rough, and can be triggered easily by silly stuff like that, especially as you get older, it’s still OK to joke about the situation.
Just ask Morrow:
Lots of great advice on here, can’t wait for these to arrive. Versatile/low-profile pockets, reinforced-knee stitching…metal zipper! Thanks Twitter! pic.twitter.com/prqsrqxX63

Good on you for the sense of humor, Morrow. It’s really the best you can do in these situations – just roll with the
pants punches. In the meantime, rest up, and hopefully be ready to go when you’re eligible to come off of the DL next week.
