Aaron Miles the hero

Posted by The Right Reverend on February 28, 2006

Did you know Aaron Miles, as well as Morgan Ensberg and other Astro players were held hostage in 2000? And it was mighty mite Aaron Miles who pounced on his captors, not the slugger Ensberg. The P-D has the story, check it out.

 “The gunman would take the gun away to scratch his head with the handle. He would slide it off Miles’ neck when peering out the window. Once when he did that, Miles pounced.Miles seized the barrel of the gun while snapping his head back out of the line of fire. Twisting the gun away from him and to the floor, he and the captor wrestled to the ground. As he was being pummeled by the gunman’s left fist, Miles bit into his right forearm – twice, drawing blood – to loosen his grip.The gunman jumped on Miles’ back and sunk his teeth into Miles’ shoulder. Miles lifted and slammed the gunman into the wall.

The two fell to the floor, the captor’s back to the carpet and Miles’ back to his chest. Both men had both hands on the gun and were attempting to wrest it free.”

Wow! Aaron Miles (5’7, 180) bit the gunmen and tossed him into a wall! As a fellow short man (5’6, 155), I find this story pretty entertaining. I’ve been ragging on Miles, as I’m not sold on his abilities even as a bench player, but that story makes me at least like the guy as a person, and maybe even root for him a bit as an underdog of sorts.

    An impressive share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a coworker who has been conducting a little research on this. And he in fact ordered me lunch because I discovered it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to talk about this matter here on your website.
