From Dental Tribune by Fred Michmershuizen:
As I was watching the New York Yankees play the Texas Rangers in Game 4 of the American League Championship Series last night, I thought I noticed something interesting. Yankees Manager Joe Girardi was being interviewed, and it looked to me like he was wearing braces.
Intrigued, I investigated this online, and sure enough, he is!
According to deadspin.com,Girardi got the metal in part because of his 5-year-old daughter,Serena, who needed braces but was afraid to get them. So “Papa Joe” the proud papa made his daughter a deal: if she would be willing to get braces to get her teeth fixed, he would too.
Way to go, Joe!
