Mitchell Boggs throws wild pitch and 'hits the bull'

Cards pitcher Mitchell Boggs fired a pitch off the backstop during Friday's game against the Braves. Instead of letting the mistake go by the wayside, the TBS announcers made a great "Nuke" LaLoosh Bull Durham reference, saying the ball "hit the bull." Broadcaster Ron Darling, probably referring to the sound the ball made when it hit, thought someone should've fallen into a dunk tank afterwards.

Very funny, guys. I'm sure Boggs thought it was hilarious. But what about Yadier Molina? I feel bad for him. He has no idea where the ball's gonna go next.
