Dmitri Young’s Best Painted Fingernails Photo Ever, Plus an Insightful Interview

Despite (and perhaps because of) Da Meathook showing up this spring at 298 pounds, going on the DL with a backiotomy and now complaining about the weight watchers, we still love the man.

Pushing my fan crush one step further is this Q & A found in Nats Park’s free mini-program (thanks, Stan!), Inside Pitch; excerpts and photos from which are found here and after the jump …

Who is your toughtest matchup on the mound?

My toughest matchup on the mound would have to be David Riske. He throws a little riser, and it’s like I’m about to hit it and I miss it.

We were on a bus during Spring Training and there were a couple of young girls dresed inappropriately, and he stood up, put his hands up and said “Lord, help them girls,” and did that, and I just about fell out of my seat and I told him I was going to use that.

  2. I’m so disappointed that his response to the last question didn’t begin with “The voodoo hands ritual came from…”.

  3. MDT, there was another exchange in this interview that I inexplicably cut. Here goes:

    Who’s your favorite wrestler?

    My favorite wrestler is “The Nature Boy,” Rick Flair … and I cannot do the “woo.”

    Brinson, thank you for noticing that. I found it hilarious.
