Members of the Washington Nationals' bullpen have some fun reciting the popular book "Fifty Shades of Grey."  This video is funny in spots and very weird in others.

There was a recent report that Nationals' first baseman Michael Morse had been reading the popular E.L. James novel "Fifty Shades of Grey."  Morse set the record straight when he admitted that his girlfriend was reading the book.  Imagine that!  A female who is currently reading "Fifty Shades of Grey"?  Get outta here.  It seems as if 90% of females in this country are currently reading the book.

Somehow, this story about Michael Morse and the reading habits of his girlfriend inspired the Nats' bullpen to record a spoof video of them reciting the book.  A funny moment occurs (:40 seconds) when Tyler Clippard and Craig Stammen recite portions of the book and look at each other intensely as they flip the pages.  A weird moment occurs at the end of the video when Sean Burnett laughs like a little schoolgirl.  The ending is about as awkward as it gets.  It was as awkward as our own Brian Cady who routinely yelled when listeners harassed him about switching from a Dallas Cowboys' fan to a New York Giants' fan.
