And after Jayson Werth's "eat somebody's face" comments after Tuesday night's loss... Jayson Werth certainly hasn't lost confidence or resolve: "We gotta show up tomorrow ready to eat somebody's face." — James Wagner (@JamesWagnerWP) June 19, 2013 ...Eating Face and #EatFace has now become a "thing".
