The things we do to women....

....especially when they're dressed as giant bratwursts.

It seems that, in a sad coda to the most notable (and notorious) incident involving the Pittsburgh Pirates and a baseball field in the last, oh, twelve years, the woman who was attacked by a Pirates player while running the Milwaukee Brewers' sausage race has retired from competitive, er, sausage-racing.

ESPN's headline to this story, as of this writing, is the entirely appropriate -- if journalistically disastrous -- "Frank (Go No) Furter". I am NOT making this up. And as always happens when I use the word "sausage" more than twice in a single blog post, I am now thirsty for a beer. If you'll excuse me....
