Larry Larue of the Tacoma News Tribune writes that Russell Branyan of the Seattle Mariners was injured while eating dinner at a pizza parlor with his son. Seriously.â†µ
â€œOn the off day last week, I took my family to a pizza parlor,â€ Branyan said. â€œThey had plastic chairs, and after weâ€™d eaten, my little guy had kicked one of his flip flops off.â†µ
â€œI was sitting on the edge of the chair, leaning down to pick it up, and the chair slid out from under me on the cement floor. I landed right on my tail bone.â€â†µ
Thanks to a lengthy career in baseball, Branyan has mastered the art of walking and chewing gum at the same time. With a little more practice as a parent, no doubt he will be able to sit and eat simultaneously as well.
