Vinnie Pestano is providing a pop culture-laden daily chronicle of his leg bruise's evolution
On Tuesday, Feb. 19th, 2013, Vinnie Pestano was struck in the leg by a batted ball. The Indians reliever, whose profound philosophical musings have made him a favorite of ours here at Cut4, soon found himself battling an ancient and powerful evil: a black-and-blue mark.
On Wednesday, the second day of harboring the beastly bruise within his body, Pestano tweeted a photo of it, and expressed concern that it was plotting bigger things:
Evolution of getting drilled by a line drive Day 2. It lies in wait, plotting to take over the rest of my leg … twitter.com/VinnieP52/stat…- Vinnie Pestano (@VinnieP52) February 20, 2013

On Friday, the contusion had complexified into a sophisticated entity comparable only to the all-powerful sacred relic from the Zelda series:
Day 4…the enemy advances yet again…the Triforce appears on the battle field. The battle for supremacy begins twitter.com/VinnieP52/stat…- Vinnie Pestano (@VinnieP52) February 22, 2013
Only time -- and @VinnieP52 -- will tell how this harrowing tale plays out.
