Phillies closer Brett Myers — who has previously started for the Phils and punched his wife in the face — is recovering nicely from his shoulder injury and has already displayed some of the manliness that makes him such a good closer.
Myers recounted a limousine drive to New York on Monday night with his wife and two children. Just before the limo reached the Lincoln Tunnel, it got a flat tire. The driver knew little about changing a tire, so Myers rolled up his sleeves and did it himself.
Good thing his wife was there. Otherwise he might not have had his tire iron on him.
