Unfortunate Sports Headline Involves Yanks’ Wang

ESPN.com has a Spring Training Blog with quick hits and notes about activities at each Major League Baseball team’s spring training camp.

The post tonight about the New York Yankees’ pitcher Chien-Ming Wang and his bad foot had a headline that would send Beavis and Butthead (and me) into giggling fits.

Chien-Ming Wang who missed the final 3½ months last season because of a foot injury, is on a restricted running program and will do most of his conditioning work indoors.

“Everything’s good,” said Wang, who threw off a bullpen mound Sunday.

In other Yankees news, CC Sabathia kept his beard on Day 2 of workouts, but it won’t last much longer. The Yankees have rules on allowable facial hair and length of hair.

“Our manager will handle it at some point,” general manager Brian Cashman said. “I don’t even think we’ve posted our team rules yet.”

Let’s hope the Yanks’ manager, Joe Girardi, will get around to handling Wang in addition to CC’s beard.

(This proves it. I have the sense of humor of a 13-year-old boy. By the way for those of you interested, the other critter in the picture up top is not a beaver. It’s a groundhog.)

Chris Berman explodes (nsfw)

The Squirrel Queen presents your chance to be a fly on the wall behind the scenes at Monday Night Football. ESPN’s Chris Berman blows his stack after halftime of a game. You can almost see those stray hairs on top of his head flapping in the breeze created by all the hot air he’s heaving at the rest of the staff.

Off the air, the sports world’s current king of the combover (not counting Purue’s retired Gene Keady) gets a bit foul with his language in calling the behind the camera staff unprofessional for their antics during a live halftime break.
