BASEBALL: Men, Don't Try This At Home

Meant to link to this a while back, words of, er... wisdom?... from Dusty Baker:

Asked about being back in baseball after a year off, Dusty said, "I enjoyed spending time with my son, my wife, my daughter and my dog. My dog is 11-years-old and I miss my dog. That's the best woman in my life." Baker's 9-year-old son heard that comment and quickly said, "I'm going to call mom and tell her."

"I love my mom, my sisters, my daughters, everybody, and it's no slight on anybody, but my dog (Bailey, a German short-haired pointer) - well, my wife knows how I feel about my dog. My wife ain't never run and got no pheasant for me. Best hunting dog I ever had and don't they always talk about man and his dog? Ain't no slight on any women in my wife.

H/T Pinto. Sounds like Dusty's son is learning better these days how and when to get out of the way.

I think we can see why Dusty felt the need to get back on the road.

I think some people need to experience a dog that won't hunt before they misjudge Dusty on this one. Good ones don't come along that often. Try asking the lady in your life to flush birds and see what you get :)

Ah, but try getting your dog to cook it afterwards.
