Griffey Sidelined by Punctuation Sign

Ken Griffey Jr. was such an amazing talent even at Moeller High School in Cincinnati, that he was drafted by the Seattle Mariners in the 1987 amateur draft. Though he never went to college, one would think that a basic high school English course would have taught him the primary punctuation signs.

But according to Yahoo News, Griffey is sidelined by a colon problem:

"It's just a condition that I have,..." Griffey said. "It's something that a lot of people have, and it's uncomfortable."

I know English isn't everyone's strong suit, but it shouldn't be that difficult. Alas, we won't be able to invite him to join the SoSG staff, even while sidelined.
