David Aardsma of the New York Mets was in to close the game against the Kansas City Royals on Friday, but ended up blowing the lead. The Mets won in extra-innings, so you'd think all was well in the Big Apple, right? Wrong.
Aardsma went home to his New York apartment, and found his bed was missing. Now they're is some speculation whether this was real, or just some joke that Aardsma was playing on Mets fans. Either way, it's hilarious.
