When asked after the game about it, Gio responded:
"My head felt like it was getting nailed right in there like a freaking sledgehammer...every inning I was going down there and (inaudible) was massaging it and massaging it, he's got the lucky fingers right now"
And about the cold weather?
"I felt like I was making love to my hand"
FP Santangelo suggested it could be a "brain freeze" and then asked Bob Carpenter if he ever got a brain freeze from drinking a slurpee. Bob replied with a little dig at the relationship of himself and FP:
FP laughed, agreed, and said that Bob was "on fire" due to the earlier comment Bob made about Bryce Harper didn't meet the president, the president met Bryce Harper. I love the Nats! Welcome back Bob & FP!
So how would this headache affect Gio? I dunno, check this out:
Yes, that is Gio taking a curtain call after hitting his 2nd career homerun (out of 7 hits). Natitude all the way!
"It was a lucky swing, I think I closed my eyes"
We will see as the game goes on if this hurts Gonzalez. So far, it doesn't look like it.
