Archie Bradley Once Soiled Himself before Taking the Mound
Most professional athletes are hesitant to reveal embarrassing personal details about themselves.
However, Archie Bradley clearly isn't most professional athletes.
During a recent podcast, the Arizona reliever was very forthcoming with answers to a variety of questions, including a request for a memorably awkward moment.
It's probably best that we hear it from the dude himself.
Barfing on the field? Archie Bradley has that beat. He pooped his pants in the bullpen right before going into a game and told us all about it on this week’s podcast. https://t.co/3JFb5UvuBC— Mike Oz (@mikeoz) June 26, 2018

Wow, there's a lot to unpack here.
First of all, props for introducing the phrase nervous pee into our collective vernacular.
Also, referring to his one inning of relief work as clean was exquisite.
If only more professional athletes were this open and frank about such things.
That'd be wonderful, and probably pretty disgusting as well.
Somewhere, George Brett is nodding furiously, and probably making someone really uncomfortable.
What a lovely story.
It was heroic of Bradley to reveal this nasty truth, even if this Code Brown confession wasn't delivered under oath.
We're all entitled to the truth.
