As someone who's sleptwalk his way into any number of hotel closets, nightstands and television cabinets, my initial impulse is to believe Jason Giambi's explanation for the gash he's sporting above his right eye these days.
But as someone who's been entertained by Brian Griese "tripping over his dog" and Brandon Marshall "slipping on a McDonalds bag and putting his arm through a TV," I want to believe it's a ridiculous excuse to cover up for something even more ridiculous. Oh, the feelings of confliction.
"I would like to have something to tell you, something like a fight or anything else," Giambi said. "But it was nothing like that. I walked into the bathroom door at the hotel and split it open."
The cut resembled a gash a boxer would get during a fight, but didn't keep Giambi out of the lineup.
"There was so much blood the maid probably was wondering where the body was hid," said Giambi.
Anyone have any theories how that gash might have gotten there? Beer pong battle gone wrong? Tripping over a crack in the sidewalk while reading the requirement for the Robert Goulet 'stached award? A pregame Battle Royale with the Hulkster himself?
A shame we can't go to the replay on this one.
