Jay Bruce Probably Knows Karate Too

Jay Bruce could probably kick the shit out of your dad.
Steadily climbing the list of People I'd Like to Do is a young buck by the name of Jay Bruce. Maybe you've heard of his awesomeness.

The Deal managed to overshadow Ken Griffey Jr.'s 599th career home run with a 10th inning walkoff to lift the Cincinnati Reds over the Atlanta Braves with an 8-7 victory. Hopefully none of you fools at the Great American left early!

Talk about stealing the thunder. Griffey was on deck, hoping to hit #600, when the 21-year-old rookie outfielder, who was called up on Tuesday, smashed his first big league bomb off Manny Acosta on a 2-1 pitch deep into the right field seats.

The Reds’ top prospect is an astounding 11-for-19 over his first five major league games, including a four-hit night and a couple of three-hit games.

Griffey, who kicked things off with a two-run homer in the first off Jair Jurrjens, is just one mighty swing away from joining and Sammy Sosa in the elite big bat club.
