    Default Pillow one Brandon Inge zero

    Brandon Inge angles for a lucrative pillow endorsement

    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.

    The details, from the Free Press:


    "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).

    "You take swings in baseball, and it's not as bad as pushing a pillow down."

    Upon hearing this story, manager Jim Leyland said, "That's a first."


    It definitely is a first, but I think anyone who's getting up there in age ? like myself and Mr. Inge ? can relate to feeling a little pain in the obliques or lower back when doing random things.

    Heck, while formatting this blog, I threw my back out three different times. I'm guessing a few people probably did while reading it, too. It's a dangerous world out there.
    I am 49, bald, ugly, and don't own a single cool thing. Kids like me though.

    "I have a 3-year-old son who sleeps in the bed with my wife and me," Inge said.

    Maybe now he'll bed train the kid.
