FriarReb98: Personally, and I've said this before, so if you remember, bear with me for the noobs, there should be levels of the HOF.

Bill Simmons?

topgun4291: When WSB had the broadcast rights to Braves games, they would occasionally do a Power Lunch with a Q&A with some of the players. One told a story about a prank that Maddux pulled.

During the game, Marcus Giles was running from 1st to 2nd and collided with a fielder (I don't remember who) and got knocked out. Giles was on the bench and a few innings later starts to come to and looks at Maddux and says "Why did Bobby pull me out of the game?"
Maddux: You don't remember?
Giles: Remember what?
Maddux: You peed your pants, Bobby had to pull you.
Giles: I DID WHAT?!?!?!

Maddux was apparently notorious prankster, which is a little surprising. My all time favorite story was when he walked up to Andre Dawson (and 3 other guys) in '87 who were sitting in the hot tub. He says something to the effect of "Have you ever seen 3 black guys running from one white guy?" Before Dawson had time to react, he drops his pants and starts taking a leak in the hot tub.

Maddux once pitched a complete game and threw under 80 pitches in it.

Welcome to the Hall of Fame, bud.

Glavine won 300 games throwing stuff I'm almost certain I could hit. 82 MPH, outside corner. And he made professionals look confused.

Maddux at least had the decency to carve you up so bad that you'd look like a leftover turkey.
