VIDEO: Jed Zayner 'Works His Balls Off' For D.C. United

D.C. United defender Jed Zayner has struggled with injuries all season. Saturday night's 1-1 tie against Real Salt Lake was Zayner's third start of the year, but it was also the first match he was able to finish without hobbling off the field prior to the end of 90 minutes.

The match wasn't painless for Zayner though. He was struck with a ball in the area ... below his stomach ... midway through the first half. Zayner was able to continue, but he wasn't able to escape questioning from Comcast Sportsnet color analyst Thomas Rongen, who asked the defender how he was feeling in a halftime interview. Hilarity ensued.

Not only does Zayner say "balls" on television, but he then corrects himself and apologies for saying "balls." He then goes on to tell the audience that he hopes he still has some babies in him after that play.

If it means that there will be more Jed Zayners in the world, then we all hope so too.
