    At least no one has said Couch failed to succeed because he failed to put in the work as a child because he was a Lay-z-Boy.

    One has to feel sorry for Couch. He went before the committee to defend his thesis, but his degree was denied because the overstuffed chair had it in for him.

    The sports desk loved Couch, but he was no Bench.

    It is a good thing couch was a pitcher, if he had been a catcher he surely would have had the stuffing knocked out of him by a collision at the plate. As a team the Reds surely had a rule not to put your feet up on the arm of the Couch.
