Over the next couple of weeks, were here at SFist will look back at curious stories and (more importantly) photos that made 2011 way boss. (Was it a good year? We think it was a good year. Sure, 2011 was a good year.) One person who stood out in 2011 was dreamy Giants closer Brian Wilson. Whether a side gig, a form-hugging spandex tudexo at the ESPY Awards, dining at Gary Danko, or endorsing Ed Lee for mayor, Wilson was everywhere. But. Did you know that, outside of the hoopla and his many bearded wannabes, Wilson is also a damn fine athlete. Of course you did. But did you know that he has a temper?
In this July 1, 2011 photo, Wilson took a bat to a water cooler after being pulled from a interleague baseball game against the Detroit Tigers in the ninth inning in Detroit. Wilson was pulled after giving up a RBI-single to Detroit's Brandon Inge.
Not since the spandex suit have we been this aroused.
