Oliver Perez dismantled a cup in the bullpen with his teeth like a can opener

From all accounts, the bullpen can be a boring, lonely place. Sure the players watch the game, but they sit around for hours waiting to see if they are needed that night. That leads to a lot of idle time, which can lead to some pretty odd ways to pass that time. Nationals reliever Oliver Perez may have topped them all.

Not only is he basically turning a paper cup into a rope with his teeth, he's doing it with amazing precision. Around and around he went, ripping off a thin layer of cup until there was nothing left. All the while, people around him continue on like nothing is out of the ordinary.

If Oliver Perez's nickname isn't the "human can opener" it should be now.
