Recently-traded David Price suffers a tire blowout, among other things, on his way to Toronto. He is expected to miss his scheduled press conference this afternoon.

Being traded is a big deal. There's a lot that goes into it. You're basically uprooting your life and moving to a new city with no notice. You have to get travel arrangements and set up a temporary living situation while doing your job the very same day. It can be very stressful, even if you're not dealing with normal every-day problems like a car tire blowing out.

While some people may think all baseball players live the glamorous life, David Price reminds us that he's just like everybody else.

That's right. David Price was on his way to Toronto while dealing with the unfortunate setback of a flat tire, and apparently an upset stomach. Do you think he was speeding to a bathroom when his tire blew? His emojis appear to support that theory...

Nonetheless, Price manages to stay in uplifted moods while he waits on help to arrive, from which he receives through the luxuries of being, well, him...

All in all, it appears everything worked out for the best. No more tweets about bubble guts, only updates on the car and his progress to Toronto:

And Toronto appears ready for David Price's arrival, as well, although I'm not sure the popcorn is a great idea considering Price's current condition...

Good luck in Toronto, Price! Hopefully it only gets better from here.
