Boston Police Officer Adds His Name To American Lexicon

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.

A Boston police officer added his name to the language. Maybe you've seen Steve Horgan, the cop on duty as the Red Sox played the Tigers in the league championship series. Boston's David Ortiz hit a home run. Video caught Officer Horgan, arms in the air, celebrating, even as Detroit's Torii Hunter flipped over the wall in a vain effort to catch the ball and tumbled near the officer's feet. In Boston, that triumphant pose is now called Horganing.
