Fear the weird? Wilson joins rivals

BY foxsports • July 30, 2013

Brian Wilson is the baseball player who would win the MLB award for being "the most like Zach Galifianakis" if such a thing existed.

His hirsute appearance and nasally voice make him funny even when he is not telling a joke.

Wilson hasn't pitched since April 12, 2012, when he found out Tommy John surgery was needed … and no team picked him up when he became a free agent at the end of last season. Well, he's almost back. Wilson signed a minor-league deal with the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday.

So we thought we'd take a look back at some of ol' Blackbeard’s greatest hits.

He told Jim Rome he was a "certified ninja." (It’s at the 2:57 mark.)

He had a Web series called "Life of Brian."

He has been in a Taco Bell commercial.

He went on George Lopez's show dressed as some kind of sea captain.

What we mean to say is we're glad Brian's back.
