Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
nah, it's ok, you've helped enough. i suppose the photo actually is hideous, but there's an explanation.

Brian Wilson is our closer, the pitcher who comes in at the end to preserve a lead.  Lots of tension, one must be mentally very tough.  So often, they're just egotistical assholes.

But Wilson is savvy, he knows how to have intelligent fun with the media. He was being interviewed on some sports show, and had that guy appear briefly at one point in the background.  No explanation, no comment, nothing, just "oh, that's the machine."

don't know if he's gay or not.  he once told the major sports network on another interview show he was a certified ninja.  Certified?  How were you certified?  Had a dream once.

So he goes against any stereotype in baseball, and fits right in with the San Francisco wierdos. Plus he's a hell of a closer.
