Jered Weaver takes his Top Ten turn on Letterman

After throwing a no-hitter against the Minnesota Twins last week, Los Angeles Angels pitcher Jered Weaver immediately started looking forward to delivering a Top Ten list on the "Late Show with David Letterman." Spending a few minutes with David Letterman has recently become somewhat of a tradition for no-no pitchers, so Weaver started getting ready to appear on one of his favorite shows.

An initial appearance, however, didn't work out in the immediate days that followed the no-hitter. But Weaver showed so much disappointment that Letterman's people finally made it work. Weaver read Tuesday's Top Ten on location from Target Field — home of the "Minneapolis" Twins as Letterman called them. And just as he had a better next start than Chicago's Philip Humber, his list was probably also funnier than the one Humber was saddled with.
