Brooks Conrad as Bill Buckner

Brooks Conrad, meet Bill Buckner. Conrad, an infielder who spent nine seasons in the minors, committed three errors in game three of the NLDS yesterday, including an embarrassing through-the-wickets gaffe in the 9th inning – eerily reminiscent of Buckner’s error in the 1986 World Series – that gave San Francisco a 3-2 victory.

As expected, the internet beat up Conrad pretty badly last night. He told reporters, “It’s completely embarrassing. I feel absolutely terrible right now. I wish I could just dig a hole and go sleep in there.” Tim Lincecum rejoiced with another F-bomb on TV.

Because you want to see it first!
