The Art of Innuendo

At times, a sport or particular situations in sports can make it too easy for the amateur comic *points to self* or not so careful sportswriter to get a quick laugh. This is even more apparent when the joke is unintentional and, most importantly, involves something "blush worthy".

To wit, taken from an article about the women's pole vault battle between Jenn Stuczynski and Yelena Isinbayeva

Big poles and big mouths don’t go together.

*swing* *crack* Hanging pitches go a long way, don't they?

Of course, such humor depends on your state of mind and presentation.
