What with a Squirrel?
I freely admit that it's super juvenile of me to find this funny, but I can't help it.
Apparently Padres catcher Justin Hatcher had an altercation with a marauding squirrel during San Diego's 9-7 win over the Rockies on Sunday. After catching and cornering the rodent of destruction, Hatcher came out on the losing end of a fight between man and squirrel when the furry fiend bit Hatcher's hand and refused to let go. Eventually, though, he did managed to free himself from the animal's jaws.
Well, according to ESPN anchor and Queen of Awkward Phrasing Sage Steele, Hatcher:
"Got a towel and jerked him off, then had to go wash it."
I have so many questions about the mechanics of squirrel handjobs, I almost don't know where to begin.
