Hello everyone, this is Frank, and as you can tell by the picture I am honored and giddy to be the newest (and greatest) Korked Bats writer. Austin asked me to write for this site about a month ago but work obligations, travel, and my sports career have been getting in the way of me and my introductory post.
…Ok, I don’t have a job, haven’t gone anywhere, and my sports career peaked in 1996 when I was the ALL STAR Sports Magazine player of the year. Don’t believe me? Here’s proof:
I know what you’re thinking. My mom just went all out that year and bought the premium picture package for my YMCA basketball team that came fully equip with 30 wallets, 2 4×6’s, an 8×10, buttons, t-shirts, and a magazine cover. You would be correct.
Anyway, enough about my past greatness. Let me tell you a little about myself for all 7 of you out there who care.
I’m 22. I go to the University of Tennessee (I see you judging…just quit it. I used to go to the most perfect college in the entire universe, the University of Kentucky). I hate mayonnaise, Bruce Pearl, hockey, bourgeoisie people, Lane Kiffin, people who flip the camera off in pictures, dried spit in the corners of people’s mouths that they wont wipe off, people who don’t fold their blankets after sleeping on my couch, foreign accents (especially Australian), the strange obsession college kids have with 80s songs, the lack of a right click on Macs, people who don’t wave or say thanks after you stop to let their car go ahead of you, the fact that they made a Sandlot 2, and the Vols.
Now, Austin has warned me to lay off my extreme bias towards all things Kentucky, John Calipari, Rich Brooks, etcetera, etcetera. (I bet you’ve never seen that written out before but I’m classy and don’t like cutting corners. Even though I used 2 contractions in that last sentence.) So I’ll try my best.
I’m new to this blogging world so give me break if I’m terrible at first.
Anyway, that’s that. Hopefully my next post will come before Obama’s presidential term runs out and that it will contain some substance unlike this one. But before I go, I leave you with a picture taken this morning of the 2 biggest ballers ever born as voted on by every human ever…
And before you bring up the fact that yesterday LeBron was posterized by a young college player, Jordan Crawford, remember his older brother, Joe, who taught him everything he knows, was a Kentucky Wildcat. Ok, now that I got that out of my system I am ready to take on the challenge of being an unbiased sports blogger. I love you all and hope to see you soon.
