The amusing-after-the-fact Winter Meetings story of the day comes from Cubs manager Dale Sveum, who was hunting with former Brewers teammate and Hall of Famer Robin Yount before coming to Nashville.  Turns out Yount has an itchy trigger finger and shot Sveum in the back with some bird shot.  It doesn’t take a rocket surgeon to deduce that Sveum wasn’t too happy about it at the time, but they’re laughing about it now.  So let’s laugh with them. I Shot the Manager To the tune of “I Shot the Sheriff” by Bob Marley Robin Yount: I shot the manager Said the Brewers’ two-time MVP, uh oh! I shot the manager Said the Brewers’ two-time MVP Yeah, we were out in the desert Tryin’ to bag a couple birds I had a quail, it was well in my sights But then Dale got in front of me And I couldn’t stop my squeeze And I say “Holy crap, he’s gonna get Cheney’d…”   RY: I shot the manager (poor Dale!) Dale Sveum: Robin, why the hell did you shoot me? RY: I know, I shot the manager… DS: Did you want my head on a trophy?   RY: I guess you were kind of lucky We weren’t hunting bears We were using pea shooters Instead of twelve-gauge shotguns Then your career would be done And so…   RY: I shot the manager DS: Yeah I’m glad my head is still attached RY: I shot the manager DS: Jesus Christ this hurts like crap   RY: I feel bad you got in the way DS: But at least you got the bird, yeah! RY: That was nice but still I have this frown I almost gunned you down I feel like a total clown And I say:   RY: I shot the manager DS: At least you’re nicer than Cheney RY: I shot the manager…I did! DS: It’s been a while and still I bleed!   RY: Seems most of the shot wound up in your back Hope you can cut me some slack DS: Hey, it happens, I say “Oh well” Help me get this last shot out My ear drum’s ringing, hearing’s out   RY: I say, I shot the manager DS: But you’re still a two-time MVP RY: I shot the manager DS: A story for the grandkids, no worries!
