MLB Player Suffers Pillow Injury

By Wyatt Earp | June 27, 2008

I swear to God, you can’t make this stuff up, kids.

We’ve heard about players getting hurt while sneezing, while sleepwalking through a nightmare about spiders and after kicking an iron bar stool.

But we had never heard of a pillow-lifting injury in baseball — that is, until Detroit Tigers’ everyman Brandon Inge reported an overstuffed owie on Wednesday, earning a feather-paved (and probably overdue) path to the injury list.

“It was the stupidest, most freakish thing,” Inge said Wednesday, explaining why he had just been placed on the 15-day DL with the pulled side muscle (oblique) he suffered 3 1/2 weeks ago.

“I have a 3-year-old son who sleeps in the bed with my wife and me,” Inge said. “I was trying to push the pillow down behind his head (two nights ago), and when I did … I repopped (the strained muscle). (H/T – !)

Aaannnddd . . . dumbass! It reminds me of that scene in Planes, Trains, and Automobiles: “Those aren’t pillows!”

    Why would he even give a reason if it is that lame?

    Admiral – My four-year old would have thought of something better.

    Randal – Oh, that’s nice!

    Leoni2 – He’s a professional athlete. Of course he expects people to believe him!

    RT – Double dumbass on him!
