Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon launched his annual "Thanksmas" celebration this past weekend, a
charitable event during which the needy are given a taste of Maddon's
own spaghetti-and-meatball sauce.
Rays pitcher David Price was a guest bartender at the celebration. Something he surely thought would have people respecting him even more than they already do. Price left the event only to find a man peeing on his car. The man wasn't very happy when he saw Price and took a swing at him, but Price avoided the situation. Price joked that he was too quick for the man to hit.
So let me get this right, he does something for charity only get his car pissed on? Probably not the way he envisioned it. There's not much that could have kept me from knocking that dude out cold.
