Papelbon’s Dog Eats World Series Ball
Apparently Jonathan Papelbon’s bulldog "Boss" has eaten the ball used to make the last out in the ’07 World Series. Boss jumped up on Pap’s table, took the ball, and tore it to pieces. Tasty. Assuming that Papelbon isn’t trying to throw a fast one by us, this is the most hilarious story I’ve heard since I found out that Jamie Lynn Spears was pregnant. While some fans may be disappointed that this piece of Red Sox history is now history, I can completely understand Boss’ actions. Balls are for dogs. Why is a ball sitting up on Papelbon’s table gathering dust? It makes no sense. Even though a game of fetch with Papelbon sounds scary to a dog without a helmet, Pap should have been out with Boss playing with the ball in his front yard to begin with. And sometimes dog toys happen to get eaten, especially those coated with the tasty aroma of Red Sox victory.
Bark at me,
