Somehow, I missed seeing this story until Friday at lunch when Grump said, “Hey, did you see where a Cleveland player got shot?”
Thinking that this was one of those “so a Cleveland player gets shot…” jokes, I replied: “What? Huh? No way…” But it’s true. He was on the team bus in Kansas City when a stray bullet came in and hit him in the leg.
Thank God, he was saved by his go-go boots…
Apparently, the Indians rookies have to dress up as cheerleaders as part of their initiation. He was wearing big, white cheerleader boots that stopped the bullet. Looks like we don’t need body armor for the troops after all. We need pom-poms! Stat!
