Manu Ginobili to Get Rabies Shots

by November 03, 2009

Following his “incident” with a bat this past weekend (which has gotten PETA all hot and bothered), the Spurs didn’t want to take any chances: “Manu Ginobili’s Halloween run-in with a bat made for entertaining news fodder for a few days. Ginobili, however, isn’t laughing anymore. Team officials could not locate the bat after Saturday’s game against Sacramento, so it could not be tested for disease. Which meant Ginobili will spend the next month getting a series of precautionary shots to protect against rabies. ‘It was pretty funny at the time,’ Ginobili said before practice this afternoon. ‘Now, it’s not. I have to get like a million shots.”‘
