Dan Hellie Will Crush You
When I saw Dan Hellie walk into the media room this morning looking like he had just taken a few crosses to his temple, I immediately thought.....well, you all can guess what I thought.
But no, it turns out Hellie was headbutted yesterday while playing pick-up hoops in Bethesda. The wound required 14 stitches to patch up.
"Blue stitches, though," Hellie pointed out. "It matches my tie."
This is not a joke: it's been an incredibly bad health week for the D.C. sports media corps. Just incredible.
And yes, Hellie will fight through the wound to still provide Super Bowl coverage all weekend.
(PS: The invites are stacking up. Help me pick which parties to attend:
Friday: Maxim party featuring everyone in the world (still waiting for confirmation), ESPN Next party featuring Ludacris, Serena Williams, Steve Nash, Drew Brees and Matt Leinart, Snow Queen Vodka Leather & Laces party featuring Carmen Electra, Roselyn Sanchez, Catherine Bell, Sugar Ray and the Deal or No Deal models, or the Sanderson Ford NFL Player Parade featuring Brandon Lloyd. Obviously the latter is the leader in the clubhouse.
