Bruce Lee tattoo saves A.J. Burnett

aj-burnett-bruce-lee-tattoo.jpgWhen Yankees pitcher A.J. Burnett got drilled by a line drive off the bat of Toronto's John McDonald in the second inning of a Grapefruit League game, the New York brain-trusts and bean-counters probably held their breath in fear.

An injury to expensive new toy is not exactly what they need.

But, luckily for them, Burnett was protected by a higher power.

That's right. We're talking about Bruce Lee.
""It's a good thing I have Bruce Lee," said Burnett, referring to the tattoo on his arm where the ball hit.
The righty was able escape injury as the ink of the legendary martial arts hero was able to kick, punch and karate-chop the pain away.

The lesson: Getting a tattoo of someone immediately enables you to harness all their strength. The challenge, it seems, it using it for good.

Something to think about.

This is very funny! Be kind of cool to have a Bruce Lee tattoo though!
