Oh, Randy!

Don't make this guy won't like him when he's angry.

This is from Newsday sometime earlier today:

If today's actions are any indication, Randy Johnson has a lot to learn about dealing with the New York media.

The Yankees' newest acquistion engaged in a heated exchange and shoving match with a CBS 2 cameraman Monday on Manhattan's Madison Avenue. Johnson, who is expected today to clear the last hurdle in the blockbuster trade that sent him from the Arizona Diamondbacks to New York by completing a physical exam, was confronted by the cameraman on Madison Ave. between 58th and 59th streets as he exited a building, accompanied by a Yankees security representative. As the camera rolled a few feet away from the 6-foot-10, 231-pound Johnson, he reached out to block the lens.

"C'mon man, I'm just taking a picture," the cameraman said as the security guards attempted to intervene.

"No pictures," he warned him. As the tape continued to roll, Johnson became more agitated. He appeared to shove the cameraman while brushing past him and grumbling "Get out my face!"

"C'mon Randy, I'm just taking a picture!" the photographer repeated.

"Don't get in my face, and don't talk back to me!" Johnson scolded as he continued to try to block the lens.

We're off to a great start!

shit. what's gonna happen when someone tries to take his picture on gameday? you know his deal, right? like how he won't speak to anyone on the morning of a day he's pitching, not even his wife. he just broods around (how this is different than usual, i have no idea), getting some alone time with his mullet and playing his drum set.

Kevin Brown has the same gameday attitude, and he was awesome last year. No, wait.

RJ is the man, I'll let him do whatever he wants. Only a few people have carte blanche to do whatever they want in any situation. Jack Bauer is at the top of the list...the Unit is on there somewhere.

Nice, great line, Ethan.

Jack Bauer is the envy of every man in America right now, even more so than Dirk Diggler circa 1998.

Bauer for President (and not Gary Bauer).
