For the 21st time in major league history, a pair of brothers will face each other on the mound tonight. Jeff and Jered Weaver will fight for family bragging rights as the Dodgers play the Angels in Anaheim.
It will be the first time the brothers have faced each other in a major game.
"We've talked about it for a long time," Jeff said. "Baseball works in weird ways. To be in a relief/starting role, and for it to line up in this particular fashion, it seems like it's kind of meant to be. So we're going to have fun with it, see what happens, and hopefully we'll both come out of there feeling good about what we've done."
That's all good until they find out that they both promised their dad a win for Father's Day. Someone's going to have to wake-up early tomorrow to go tie shopping.
Thanks for hanging out today and Happy Father's Day to all of you dads out there. I hope tomorrow brings you good beer, grilled food, and sexual favors. [Ed. note: I was sitting at the bar thinking about that last sentence and I realized that it might be taken the wrong way. I am in no way implying that you should get sexual favors from your kids for Father's Day.]
