Getting Checked Into The Boards Hurts More Than Getting Hit By A Pitch, Says College Reporter Who Got Checked Into The Boards

Long-time, first-time tipster Mike Toper saw the video of Kansas City Star blogger/reporter Lee Judge getting beaned by a batting-cage ball, and you know what he said to himself? Judge is a pussy. Fine, he didn't say that exactly, but he provided video evidence supporting that stance, along with this explanation:

I attended Oswego State University, which boasted the #1 hockey team in Division III pretty much all season (they eventually lost in the D-III frozen four). Back in December, as a promo for our hockey broadcasts, I thought it'd be entertaining to take a check from Tyler Leimbrock, whom the head coach dubbed as one of the hardest hitters on the team.

I didn't think to submit it until I saw the Royals reporter being beaned by a ball. After taking a mild concussion, I can tell you this hurt more.


Boom went the Plexiglass.
