Washington Nationals pitcher Gio Gonzalez “meowed” his way through a sports interview Wednesday.

That is, he slipped the feline vocalization in wherever he could, while teammate Max Scherzer kept score:

Substituting words like that may not be popular meow, but it was a thing about 15 years ago, thanks to the 2001 cop classic “Super Troopers."

It was a strange time. Kind of like meow.
