Tweet of the day: Chipper Jones encounters issue in his garage

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer

Future Hall of Famer Chipper Jones is surely enjoying his retirement in this holiday season, but that doesn't mean he's cut out to be a handyman. Witness his self-deprecating tweet Thursday morning:

I'm trying to figure out what happened, and my best guess is that he assembled the basketball hoop on the ground and when he went to raise it up, he realized he had the pole through the stepladder.

Well done, Chipper.
