Kevin Burkhardt bites tongue, but keeps talking
Really, it's time for the major sports league to direct teams to include announcers on their injury lists, lest fans not understand and appreciate the context of their performances.
Take Monday night's Mets game. A source in the Shea Stadium press lounge said SNY's Kevin Burkhardt injured his tongue by biting it during the pregame meal, negatively affecting his ability to pronounce the letter "S" all night.
It's a good thing Santana didn't pitch for the Mets.
Burkhardt battled through the injury, making his the third most impressive effort of the night after Pelfrey and Delgado.
