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.

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.
