Dascenzo On ESPN AT The DBAP

The Herald-Sun's Frank Dascenzo has
a write-up on ESPN's visit to the DBAP Monday
. Now is it us, or is
this just an odd paragraph?

"The number 29 is Mayne's favorite for an amazing reason. On May 29, 1996, his wife, Laura, gave birth to twins, Connor and Creighton, who both died in minutes. Say this for Mayne, beneath the quick one-liners is a darn sharp, dignified guy who injects humor in the sports world that, at times, clearly needs it."

How do you go from losing twins to humor in the sports world that...we're not
even sure how to put it. It's just a jarring paragraph.
