In yesterday's P.M. Hot Clicks
, we featured a tweet by Amanda McCarthy
, the wife of A's pitcher Brandon McCarthy
. The tweet said, "Hey @mlb, Extenze is offering a two week free trial that I want to get @BMcCarthy32... That's cool with the PED rules, right?" In a stunning development, one podcaster
actually thought Amanda was being serious. The podcaster actually ripped the McCarthy's and suggested among other things:
1. Brandon divorce Amanda, ASAP.
2. Amanda really wanted to take advantage of the two-week free trial. (As if the McCarthy's couldn't afford the Extenze on Brandon's $4 million salary).
3. Amanda was trying to "spice things up" with her desire to get her husband Extenze.
4. Brandon wouldn't be able to show his face in the A's locker room after the tweet.
Let me repeat, the podcaster was being 100 percent serious. As for the picture above, I figured the podcaster would enjoy the symbolism of Brandon with a decapitated wife.
