Thank You Nancy Sinatra

Cleveland Indians rookie pitcher Kyle Denney was shot in the right calf last week while riding on the team bus.

Shot, as in bullet.

That would be remarkable enough, but there's more. This was the traditional 'rookie hazing' road trip, and Denney was wearing a cheerleader's outfit. The ensemble included white go-go boots, and the thickness of the leather slowed the bullet enough that it caused only minor injury.

Well, that's why we all wear them, isn't it?
