All right kids, it’s time to take out your WTFmeters. This is not a drill. I think we’re about to hit Ludicrous WTF.

THE DAGGER has the scoop on Huggy Bear’s less-than-believable excuse:
West Virginia University athletic director Ed Pastilong, left, and WVU basketball coach Bob Huggins are shown Sunday, June 7, 2009, at a fantasy camp basketball banquet in Morgantown, W.Va. Huggins kept his sense of humor as he sported two black eyes and a welt. He says he stepped into the edge of his bathroom door late one night. Pastilong’s right hand was in a cast from recent surgery.
Ahem. Evidently Huggins’ bathroom door is made out of 1987 Mike Tyson.
