I defy anyone to find a better lead paragraph for a news story: "A German student created a major traffic jam in Bavaria when he mooned a group of Hell's Angels, hurled a puppy at them, and then escaped on a bulldozer."

Deadspin: In at least six major league ballparks across the Midwest, a mysterious figure has been stepping up to urinals and dropping trou to the ankles to relieve himself. Of course, there's a video compilation.

Pedroia, to Orsillo, the day after his 5-for-5, 3-HR night:

How many times did you say "laser show" last night? You should start calling it the "rocket blasting show".

Can he play second base? The lower runs production could be offset by his height advantage and extra reach.
