05:57 AM ET 12.05 | Remember when Dick Cheny shot that guy in the face? Well it turns out it's not just extreme right-wing politicians that can't shoot straight as even Hall of Fame baseball players occasionally miss their target too. While out hunting this offseason in Arizona, Chicago Cubs manager Dale Sveum was accidentally shot in the ear by friend and Hall of Famer Robin Yount. Apparently a quail flew out in front of Sveum, and Yount shot first and asked questions later. Amazingly, Sveum didn't get any stitches after being shot. But you better believe there were plenty of bad Dick Cheny-Robin Yount jokes had after the little hunting snafu. But let's not forget that Sveum was technically shot in the head and didn't even need stitches. When do the Dale Sveum-Chuck Norris comparisons begin?

Is Yount hoping to count this toward his 3000+ hit total?

With friends like Yount who needs enemies?

Geez.......... some people have no business handling a gun and sounds like Yount is one of them.

It serves Sveum right by wearing his giant quail costume and flapping his wings thereby confusing Yount

Do you think the Brewers put a bounty on Sveum?

Sveum better not go skydiving or snorkeling.

No. The Brewers won 13 out of 17 from the Cubbies last year.

Which is why the Brewers wouldn't have put out a contract on the one manager they regularly beat.
