Gio Gonzalez Has Brain Freeze, Gio Gonzalez Goes Yard, Makes Love To His Hand?

DC Sports Nexus ---- Wednesday, April 3, 2013

After the first inning of Wednesday Night's contest between the Washington Nationals and Miami Marlins, a sleeveless (its freakin' cold out there) Gio Gonzalez walked off the mound appearing to be in pain.  Gio grimaced as he put his hand to his temples, looking to have a headache of some sort.  Gonazlez was shown walking down into the locker room (probably to grab some Advil)

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.
