Kyle Denney's go-go boots made a booboo out of his bullet wound.
The Cleveland Indians pitcher was able to chuckle Thursday, recounting how the cheerleading outfit he wore during a rookie hazing ritual likely saved his leg from serious injury.
Denney was hit in the right calf by a stray bullet that ripped through the Indians' bus Wednesday night as it carried the team to Kansas City International Airport after Cleveland's game against the Royals at Kauffman Stadium.
The bullet grazed outfielder Ryan Ludwick in the leg before striking Denney, who was wearing white leather knee-high boots to match his University of Southern California sweater and skirt. The bullet pierced the boot, but it caused only a flesh wound that allowed team trainers to remove the slug on the bus and hand it over to police.
Ludwick thought someone threw a firecracker at him only to realize that a bullet had glanced off his leg and hit his teammate across the aisle. Panic briefly swept through the bus, but it subsided after the team learned that Denney's injury was minor. Then the jokes started flying again.
Most amazing off field baseball story in some time! It's really good he didn't get seriously hurt, but I must say when I read the story the thought of "Did he go to the hospital with the cheerleader outfit on!" & the reaction to the medical staff would be something to see. But he was well enough to get into his "normal" clothes (well normal in quotes because I don't know much about Denney's personal life lol)... One thing for certain, Go-Go boots rule! Oh and do I even want to ask about the bumblebee outfit
smark/net attack wienerville advisory holds at ORANGE alert - High (JBL is STILL WWE champion and now smarks arch enemy HHH is the World Champion. Major red threat, but the undercard seems okay. The alert holds... for now)- 9/19
I am hoping this is an exaggeration on your part. To think that plugging an average reliever into the "closer" role (say Mike Timlin), that the Yankees would lose 18 more games than they did, makes no sense.
