Apparently. I felt this deserved it's own discussion.

I haven't read anything other than a short summary, but it's kinda crazy to think an inch or so is all that stood between him and being 6 ft under.

Is this a new development or an old story? Some context would be nice.

Sveum talked about it on MLB TV yesterday, too.

http://muskat.mlblogs.com/2012/12/04/12 ... eum-yount/

Quote:
Don’t expect Robin Yount to be added to Cubs manager Dale Sveum’s staff. The Hall of Famer accidentally shot his former Brewers teammate in the right ear while hunting quail in Arizona.

“The bird went up in front of [Yount] and I was about 50 yards up on the hill,” Sveum said Tuesday, explaining the freak incident. “He got the bird up and lost track of where I was and pulled the trigger and was like, ‘Uh oh.’ I was looking for birds myself and he was behind me. I got drilled with pellets in the back and the ear.”

Sveum’s reaction was expected and unprintable. Was there blood?

“Oh yeah, there was blood,” Sveum said.

The Cubs manager didn’t need stitches.

“You don’t get hit very often,” Sveum said. “It’s not that big a deal.”

He said they usually don’t fire that close to each other but there have been times in the past when they’ve had 6-shots fall on them. We know Yount shot Sveum. What about the quail?

“He got the bird,” Sveum said.

Sveum confirmed that after the shooting he referred to Yount as Dick Cheney, the former vice-president who famously shot a friend in the face during a hunting accident.

First of all, glad Sveum is ok......The 2nd thing thing that came to mind was that if something like this happens, it doesn't surprise me at all that it happens to the Cubs...

I guess you can add Robin Yount to the list of people never to go quail hunting with. The list already included Dick Cheney.

Sveum strikes me as the type of guy who could have an ear blown off, pick it up, put it on ice, and carry on with his business.

On MLB TV he claimed he shot two birds right after it happened. Not sure if he was joking or not at that point, because it's him.

I bet if Starlin Castro had his ear blown off, he wouldn't even be able to play the next day. Maybe more. $@&! kids today.

Shocked it took this long for the Cheney joke. Offseason for posters here too I suppose.

I hope Dale Sveum realizes that if the Cubs win the WS in 2013, he's going to have to let Robin Yount shoot him in the ear next offseason too.

You know, just in case...

I guess it was done so well it went over my head. I didn't get it.

When I first saw this reported, I instantly pictured the hunting scene from The Campaign.
