my future... giant? ick

blake and i often discuss his future as a major league baseball player (what 10 year old boy doesn't have this discussion? probably ones that hate baseball.. moving on).


blake: so what happens if i get drafted by the giants? do i tell them, i really want to play baseball, just not with your team?


me: i don't think so blake. i mean, if you are lucky enough to get drafted, even if it's by the stupid giants, you'll say yes. you'll be so excited to play ball, you won't care who it's for.

blake: will you come watch me play?

me: probably not.

Reminds me of a story about a guy getting drafted into the NHL and refused to play with the team that originally chose him. A bit of an asshole move.

Very funny.
My 9yr old is convinced he will play soccer with Liverpool FC when he grows up. Very cute.

Don't worry about a thing Blake, Drew and I will come watch you all the time. The conversation reminded me of when Drew asked Frank something along those lines except with the Red Sox. Frank said it would be the only time in his life he would cheer for the Red Sox.

Dear Jennster,
I DID read this post and I thought it was very funny. I didn't comment though cuz .... um, I didn't. But I really like it. Personally, I'm with Blake. He should turn down the Giants. He can play for the Angels or Dodgers, but definitely not the Giants. And I mean that!
