Jonathan Papelbon's Dog Was Hungry For A Piece Of History

Here's a short story I found different and comical.

The baseball from the final out of the 2007 World Series is, or rather, was at Jonathan Papelbon's home in Hattiesburg, Miss, according to the Hattiesburg American.

Jonathan Papelbon's dog, "Boss" likes to play with baseballs and Boss found the baseball that Red Sox catcher Jason Varitek gave the closer after he struck out the Rockies' Seth Smith to clinch Boston's second World Series title in four years.

"My dog ate it," Papelbon told the newspaper. "He plays with baseballs like they are his toys. His name is Boss. He jumped up one day on the counter and snatched it. He likes rawhide. He tore that thing to pieces.

"I'll keep what's left of it," he told the paper.

The common excuse for not doing one's homework does not go over well in school...and I don't think it goes over well for a professional MLB player.
