The Third Weird Baseball Injury Of 2013: Washington Nationals Pitcher Gio Gonzalez Got Rug Burn On His Forehead From His Dog

Not really sure what else there is to say that hasn't already been said. This is weird, an injury—technically—and it is baseball-related. Oh, and it happened in 2013. While Gio's injury is not all that serious—he was able to make his first start of the spring today and pitched relatively well—no weird injury is too mild to cover.

His dog's name is Hollywood and she is a booze hound. Could explain the violent outbursts.
