Strange Event Of The Day

Caption: A guy dressed in green felt delivering season tickets? Not even close to the strangest thing. In some parts of the country, in fact, this is a disturbingly common occurrence.

Yes, this really is something that doesn't happen to everyone:

CLEARWATER, Fla. -- Charlie Manuel occasionally reminds people he has been in baseball 50 years. He has seen almost everything.

But it took until Sunday for a grown man pedaling a tricycle to crash into him on the field.

Tricycle collision gives Manuel a good laugh

I've read a lot of things today, including some folks trying to sound like they understand what happened in the recent Italian elections (does anyone, really?), and the usual run of strange things at and NASA. This is the strangest, and second strangest isn't even close.

After all, when you're standing on a grass and dirt surface, the last thing you'd expect to be hit by is a tricycle, no matter what the age of the driver.

Major League Baseball wins that competition today.
