Are We Sure He Doesn’t Play for the Mets?

aloisio-sao-paulo1Talk about making a notable debut; Aloisio is a striker on the second-division Brazilian soccer club Vasco da Gama who managed to knock himself unconscious in a unique manner. After colliding with an opponent, Aloisio choked on his chewing gum, losing consciousness for several minutes on the field.

“It was a very serious situation,” Vasco doctor Paulo Cesar Rocha said. “Luckily we identified the problem quickly and took the gum out to help him breathe again.”

With a propensity to get injured AND a propensity for choking I can’t believe Omar Minaya isn’t on a plane right now, contract in hand.

“I don’t remember a lot,” Aloisio told the media. “I only remember the doctor taking the gum out. I have never been scared like this — no more chewing gum for me.”
