Michael Bourn’s amusing bathroom break (VIDEO)

Big League Stew

Being a professional athlete has to be really weird these days. One moment you're trying to squeeze in a bathroom break between innings, the next morning you're all over television and the Internet because your, uh, "relief effort" took too long and held up the game.

Watch as Atlanta Braves outfielder Michael Bourn causes a humorous delay in Thursday's 10-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Of course, the good news is that Bourn didn't get himself locked in the loo, forcing manager Fredi Gonzalez to flush him from the game for a replacement. Also, not only did players from both sides get a chuckle over the delay — Tim Hudson really couldn't wipe that smile from his face, could he? — but Bourn did as well. When you gotta go, you gotta go.
