    I cut my finger on a can of tuna fish about two weeks ago. That bled like a bitch.

    If you were a world-class athlete, it would have required 108 stitches!

    Boy, athletes and big pieces of glass don't mix -- wait, that's another thread.

    I'm not sure if I should give Hunter Pence points for a good, aggressive lay or admonish him. One hand, not many would use the glass bathroom door as leverage to let some spring training skeezer ride him, but he's a gamer.

    On the other hand, it could have just been oral sex, in which case, Pence is skittish beyond words. Dude ... sometimes they do stroke the balls. Don't act like you just took a tazer blast, play it off like you've been there before.

    I've done that twice and seen it done numerous times at parties. More often with a screen door, thankfully.

    I too have done that with a screen door. Man did i kick that screen's ass. I'm guessing Pence might have been a little drunk for this one.

    If they trained in Arizona I would have asked if he was staying at Kerry Wood's house.
