Ah Pittsburgh, the appendix of our state.

In another show of awfulness, here's a story about Pirates catcher Chris Snyder, whose wife, Carla, almost collided with a motor scooter (ist?). The driver (rider?) became enraged. Luckily, Joe Changle, a former wrestler, intervened: [Pittsburgh Post-Gazette via Big League Stew]

Mr. Changle couldn't ignore Mrs. Snyder's yells for help.

"She was screaming, 'help, help me, my husband just had back surgery and he can't do anything,'" said Mr. Changle, 22, of Scott. "I stepped toward the male and I said, 'You've got to chill out, you don't hit women.'

"I've got a pretty hot head, so he got pretty defensive real quick and tried to assault me. I said, 'Dude, don't threaten me, just back off.' I had to make a decision whether I was going to let him hurt me or possibly neutralize things."


First of all, who drives a motor scooter? Pee-wee? This guy?


Pee-wee is being held on $25,000 bond. You stay classy, Pittsburgh.
