Somebody get the mayor an ice compress or a raw steak.
At an event on Monday to announce winter heating assistance services, Chicago Mayor Richard Daley made his remarks with a darkened, swollen right eye.
Press secretary Jacquelyn Heard was scant on details, but said the mayor hurt himself during a workout session over the weekend.
"As he typically does over the weekend, he was working out using a weight machine and accidentally grazed the side of his face with the equipment," she told the Chicago Sun-Times.
No word on whether he smacked the equipment back.
