PHOTO, VIDEO: Nolan Ryan will just keep pitching, thanks
Back in 1990, not even being struck by a ball off the bat of Bo Jackson could keep Nolan Ryan off the mound.
Courtesy of the undeniably wonderful Ninety Feet of Perfection, comes this image, which is of baseball-thrower Nolan Ryan in the throes of bloody determination ...
Mr. Ryan, you see, had on a September night in 1990 suffered the second-inning depredations of one Bo Jackson and his mighty cudgel ...
Note that he sucked up the blood for a moment, because blood tastes like complete games. In a related matter, he'd stay in this game for another 17 outs.
OK, I suppose it might have been a tad more dramatic had Ryan remained standing after taking a Bo Jackson liner off the chops, but recall that rogue physicists have proved that a Bo Jackson grounder contains as much SPF (or "Science Power Force") as a sun fired out of a cannon made of fangs.
And still Nolan Ryan pitched, teeth probably loosed from their moorings.
