So, unless you've been living in a cave -- one probably filled with actual baseball, played by people and not ghosts -- you've no doubt heard that the Boston Red Sox entire organization unraveled this past week thanks to charges that the pitchers (all fatties, the whole lot of 'em!) on the baseball team sat around on off days and drank beer and ate fried chicken in the locker room.
They also -- gasp! -- played video games. This would have nothing to do with football, except Aaron Hernandez of the Patriots decided to have a little fun with reporters in a recent interview in front of his locker, by snacking on a giant piece of chicken while he answered questions.
"It's General Tso's chicken," Hernandez said. "It's grilled, so it's pretty healthy."
Hernandez almost loses it laughing every time he rips a big bite out of the chicken, and he makes a point to say that it's healthy and grilled (versus fatty and fried), so it's pretty obvious that he's taking a shot at the Red Sox.
