brianwilson275.jpgThe San Francisco Giants' world-wide crazy closer Brian Wilson, a New England native, has done a fair job of humoring baseball fans since his entrance on the national stage.

Beyond being an all-star last season and a world series champion, he's becoming well known for his comically cartoonish character. It started with his beard -- dyed black for reasons that are still unclear -- and apparently has been upgraded to full-blown costumes on National TV. Wilson appeared on the Lopez Tonight show the other night dressed as a seaman and proceeded to talk about "strictly sexual" massages in Thailand and how his attitude as a pitcher directly relates to Chuck Norris.

"Chuck Norris is known to throw pitches at a 100 miles per hour," Wilson said. "I'm known to throw Chuck Norris at a 100 miles per hour."

Watch the interview below and note that "the machine" does make an appearance.

In short, Brian Wilson makes baseball fun.
