And if you give him a live microphone during a clinching celebration?
Well, he will gladly swear into it.
Andrew Baggarly of the Mercury News has the details in all of their profane glory:
After the clincher Monday, I was standing right next to Timmy as he was doing a live interview with Dave Flemming on KNBR. And I could see a gleam in his eye as he was asked to survey the scene.
"I don't now what the (fudge) to say I'm so (fudging) pumped up right now."
Tiny Tim. The Freak. The Human Slingshot ... The Seven-Second Button? Considering Lincecum's previous incidents (here and here), that'd be a pretty apt addition to his growing collection of nicknames. Right now, he's like the little kid in the grocery store who figures out how to use the paging system when his mother's back is turned. Heh.
