Jose Mijares headshot.jpgBack in 1982 Pascual Perez was late for a game with the Braves when he kept circling the city on I-285, unable to find the stadium.  That’s still the best reason I’ve ever heard for being late, but Twins’ pitcher Jose Mijares is probably in second place:

Lefthander Jose Mijares reported to camp on Tuesday
after finally boarding a flight from Caracas, Venezuela to the United
States.

Mijares said he tried to board a flight on Sunday
but got caught up in a security check while the plane loaded and
departed. According to Mijares, police were suspicious about some hair
gel in his luggage.

Mijares was eventually allowed to take a later flight, but not until he was subjected to enhanced interrogation and admitted to the possession of vast quantities of weapons-grade Dippity-Do.

    Johnny Damon might have had in mind smuggling large quantities of LA Looks into Windsor, ala modern day Joe Kennedy.
    The Dippity-Do remark goes in baseball bloggers Hall Of Fame with votes from me and Old Gator. Aqua Velva commercials are back on History Channel, btw, but only on that shows what happens “one year without people”.
