When World Series Ball Becomes A Chew Toy

When World Series ball becomes a chew toy, there’s lesson to be learned. Leave it to a pooch to put things in perspective. While the rest of us have been wringing our hands about the national pastime’s drug problem and wondering where our Joe DiMaggios have gone, or trying to stay current on Tony Romo’s girlfriends, Jonathan Papelbon’s dog was happily shredding a World Series ball.

Not just any World Series ball, mind you. The ball caught for the final out of Boston’s sweep of the Rockies this fall. “He plays with baseballs like they are his toys,” Papelbon told the Hattiesburg (Miss.) American. “He jumped up one day on the counter and snatched it. He likes rawhide. He tore that thing to pieces.” How perfectly appropriate. Especially now.
