DBD 5.24.11 Juggernate

By now you all likely know that Nate Schierholtz hits home runs and throws out foolish runners trying to take extra bases.

But did you know that he's an American hero?  That's right!  In Beijing at the 2008 Olympics Juggernate did what countless Americans have failed to do:  Stand up to China!

Schierholtz played well in the Olympics and left with a bronze medal.  And yet the play everybody remembers is his violent slide into China's back-up catcher, Yang Yang.  Why, exactly, was it China's back up catcher?  Because their starter had already left the game because of an injury sustained after an earlier collision at the plate with Matt LaPorta.  USA!  USA!  USA!  This collision eventually led to China retaliating by hitting LaPorta with a pitch, leading to the ejection of China's manager.  But don't worry, the United States emerged victorious, 9-1.

His ability to send China's catcher flying earned him the Juggernate nickname in the title of this DBD, and also inspired this impressive bit of photoshipping:
