Johnny Damon helped the Yanks win their fifth straight game on Sunday afternoon. Yankees fans saw the third consecutive walk-off win, as well as the third consecutive shaving cream pie in the face by the hands of A.J. Burnett. A.J. Burnett is actually a pretty interesting guy. He was featured in today’s NY Post Sunday Q&A with Steve Serby. Some highlights in the conversation include nipple rings, his favorite players growing up (Darryl Strawberry and Doc Gooden), naming his bats after his favorite bands (Korn and Marilyn Manson), as well as this exchange:

Q: You’ve suffered a freak injury...bowling?

A: Slid off in the left gutter, broke my left foot—completely sober.

Q: Now that’s embarrassing. I would never admit to that.

A: OK, I was hammered (laughs).

So yeah, to put it simply, I am now a big fan of AJ Burnett (I’ll give his choice in music a free pass). See below for some pics of today’s walk-off pie in the face.
