Inspired by the Olympics and the speed of Yusain Bolt, I felt compelled to look up some of MY past accomplishments. Not only was I a high school track star, but also a kick a$% softball player. And a really good cross county runner, too. An article was published (no kidding) in the Columbia Missourian comparing me to Deon Sanders. The more that I think about that comparison, the more that I realize the similarities between the two of us are endless. Unfortunately I couldn't find that article online - but I do have it framed at home. I swear.
Anyway, this is all that I could really find online. I read it outloud to Dennis and this was his response:
"You played 3rd base? Did you actually throw anyone out?"
"Yes, Dennis I am really good. And fast."
"Maybe in 1996."
Man, I feel old. I guess there is a slight chance that I was a little bit faster TWELVE YEARS AGO.
