Brandon Inge, Lethal Weapon, Major League Baseball, Martin Riggs, MLB, Oakland A's, Oakland Athletics, Riggs
If you’re familiar with “Lethal Weapon”, you’ll remember Mel Gibson’s character, Riggs, is a little off. During one famous scene, he dislocates his shoulder, and then induces cringes when he resets it himself. That’s cute and all, but I know one former Ram who can top that.
On Saturday, VCU alum Brandon Inge dislocated his right (throwing) shoulder diving for a ball down the line against the Chicago White Sox. After resetting the shoulder himself, he could’ve and probably should’ve come out of the game. Nobody would begrudge him for that. But let’s ask ourselves, what would this kid do?
That’s right. Little League mullet Brandon Inge would stay in the game and deliver the game winning hit like a boss. He later said that he’s dislocated his shoulder “16 or 17 times”. Um, what? Can we start a petition to just start calling Inge “Riggs” from here on out? Good.

Brandon Inge, Oakland Athletics
My name is Brandon and I was born to rock.
I wouldn’t normally do this, posting about Charles Brandon Inge on three consecutive days, but when a guy hits a walk-off grand slam in his first home game with a new team, you sort of have to do it. Here’s the link to that. If anybody can solve the mystery of embedding MLB video into WordPress, I’ll be forever greatful.
Inge is now hitting .179 in seven games with the A’s, but he’s homered in two of his last three games and has been playing his usual solid third base. After starting the year on the disabled list, his bat appears to be coming around.
In an unrelated/related note. Is there any doubt after looking at the picture on the right that if Inge had grown up about 10-15 years earlier, he’d be driving a Camaro and blasting Whitesnake 24/7? Let’s move on.
Bonus video. It appears the Oakland fans are taking to Inge just fine.
Bonus Bonus Video. Josh Hamilton confirmed good at baseball. Enjoy this as long as the MLB Youtube police allow it to exist.

Brandon Inge, Magic Bullet Theory, Oakland Athletics
Yesterday we showed you former Ram Brandon Inge’s first homerun as a member of the Oakland Athletics. But now we’re finding out a little more about that baseball Inge sent into oblivion. This video proves without a doubt that there was just one hitter on that grassy knoll. Two victims, one baseball, one grainy video.
