Toronto Blue Jays' Munenori Kawasaki: A monkey never cramps because they eat bananas

Toronto Blue Jays infielder Munenori Kawasaki was talking about a cramp issue with Barry Davis of SportsNet Canada, when he made an interesting comparison.

Davis starts off by asking how his leg feels and what happened. Kawasaki gives a pretty straight-forward answer, just a “cramp.” Davis then asks what he can eat to make him feel better. It looks like Davis knew what answer Kawasaki was going to give him before asking the question, which would be kind of an odd question, because he says “you told me” before rephrasing the question. It would’ve probably been the first time anyone was asked about what to heat when dealing with an injury before.

Kawasaki responds with “bananas,” and then explains that “monkeys never cramp.” Monkeys never cramp because they eat bananas every day. Kawasaki then announced he was eating three bananas to combat his cramp and get back into action.

All-in-all it is pretty funny, definitely a funny answer, though the whole thing is a bit staged. Can’t argue with the theory, never seen a monkey cramp. Wonder if there is some actual data or evidence to support the claim that monkeys never cramp.
