Matt Harvey celebrates Tommy John surgery anniversary with middle finger picture

Tuesday marked the sixth month anniversary of New York Mets pitcher Matt Harvey undergoing Tommy John surgery. The 25-year-old righthander acknowledged the milestone on Twitter with a somewhat inappropriate picture that he quickly deleted.

We can understand why Harvey thought better of leaving the photo on his Twitter page, but everyone should also be able to understand how a young athlete could feel that way about major reconstructive surgery. Here’s what Harvey’s initial tweet said.

Athletes from New York have done much stranger things from hospital rooms than flipping the bird. At least Harvey didn’t stand up on the window sill and moon traffic that was driving by.

    Big deal. It’s just “a guy being a guy”. What guy hasn’t flipped the bird for no reason other than “because”. That’s what makes us guys and not women.
