Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune tweeting about his duties as the Cubs beat writer, which this morning included asking Carlos Zambrano how he felt after breaking a bat over his leg last night:

Oh jeez. Big Z just pulled his pants down to show me his legs. No bruises. “I got soccer legs.”

Watching baseball for a living and getting to look at a pants-less Carlos Zambrano’s soccer legs? Some jobs have all the perks.
