Well, at least we know that Brandon McCarthy knows how to take a joke. The Diamondbacks’ newest pitcher apparently took care of getting his license renewed over the holiday break. There was just one problem, though: The local DMV got its letters mixed up. While McCarthy’s license correctly states that he’s 6-foot-7 and has hazel eyes (we think), the easy party — male or female — appears to have gotten adjusted during the renewal process. McCarthy’s wife, Amanda, was all over it. Something doesn't look right on Brandon's new license... http://t.co/QAr0AFBn— Amanda McCarthy (@Mrs_McCarthy32) December 28, 2012 Of all people to have such a mistake made on his driver’s license, though, Brandon McCarthy may be the guy. Last year, when he was involved in one of baseball’s scariest moments after being hit by a line drive, he bounced back by doing all kinds of joking, including some shenanigans his wife didn’t exactly approve of. He may be able to have some fun with this one, too. Thumbnail via Twitter/@Mrs_McCarthy32 Photo of the Day That is Saints owner Tom Benson, suspended Saints coach Sean Payton, and a very interesting handshake that bodes well for Saints fans. Quote of the Day “Making it to the NFC Championship is not easy, and I think [Eagles fans are] starting to see that right now, that getting to the playoffs and going to the NFC Championship consistently, it’s just not that easy. There are teams right now who have winning records, like the Atlanta Falcons, they’ve done it for so many years, and they get to the playoffs and all of a sudden they’re one-and-done.” – Donovan McNabb, with some good analysis on the Eagles’ situation Tweet of the Day The Clippers get their sweet 16th. Yeah Clippers are for real, come back from 19 in 3rd, on a back to back.... Something special is a brewing!!!!— Reggie Miller (@ReggieMillerTNT) December 29, 2012 Video of the Day The Kings just wanted to wait until the buzzer to polish this one off.

  • Maybe he could play for Baylors women basketball
  • A mix-up in paperwork makes the news?
  • about the same as you
  • If he's in Arizona, why does he have a Texas license? I'm from Texas and that is a Texas license. Also, look in the upper corner. Right below "USA" is the state abbreviation "TX." Are we sure this is even for real.
  • Good question. My DL from Arizona has my pic in the lower right corner. Hmmmm.
  • Ummm...he's an Arizona Diamondback....doesn't mean he lives in Arizona, he may live in TX and therefore have a TX driver license
  • Where does it say he is in AZ? He PLAYS for them, but few ball players live off-season where they play ball. Too much moving around. Most pick a place they want to live, and that is where they keep their legal address. During the season they rent condos or bunk with a buddy who might live in that city year round.
  • It looks like a California Drivers License cause it looks like mine by the parts that are visible
  • Tax' are different in Texas. Check State Income Tax, also if your registering a vehicle in Arizona the plates cost more, so you keep it in Texas.
  • Man are you guys hard up for news.
  • Obummer has a Connecticut S.S. number, but that's OK. Lie, cheat, whatever it takes, if you're a Dem...
  • No where did it say he was getting an Arizona license. All it said was that he renewed his license which obviously it is from Texas.
  • OOPs! Some clerk is gonna get kidded about needing an eye test! LOL!!!
  • What are you folks worried about? Complaining about lame news IT'S SPORTS. It is meant to entertain you not give you life advice.
  • Is that all there is to a fire?
  • sheeeeeeshhhh............thats some top notch reporting there.....NOT ,im not a fan of the media AT ALL,most of the media are a bunch of morons.
  • enough with this idiotic headline/story. wtf
  • Just a note on a typo in this. " the easy party-" should be the easy part. I kind of found this funny from an article on a mix up.
