Any sports fan with any type of human emotion has fallen in love with Brandon McCarthy after he was struck in the head with a baseball while pitching against The Angels, who also sent a beautiful flower arrangement to him and his wife Amanda. (follow her here) Brandon encountered some very serious medical issues after the incident and was just recently released from the hospital and is recovering at home. Throughout the whole process he was on Twitter corresponding with fans and the media while being extremely lighthearted and joking, on many occasions, about his condition and how he was recovering. I originally was going to do a post on his best tweets, still might, but I came across this and I was so impressed I decided to share it with our readers, hi Mom! Any woman that can dish it out like this, especially given the seriousness of his condition, is worth holding on to. Keep up the verbal bashing Amanda, we salute you!
