Would you believe one of the best power hitters in baseball can also swing another stick pretty well?
Over the weekend, the Pujols Foundation had an event at Top Golf in Arizona. Having a charity in your name is a very noble thing. I hope to get to a point in my life someday where I can have the Dozo Foundation. There will be no snarky remarks here about the event or Pujols ruining his legacy by still playing.
During said event, Mike Trout; the man unanimously considered the best player in baseball, took a mighty hack that set the internet a storm.
Being in the content game, I understand we all feel the pressure to produce. It's a dog eat dog world in the content game.
Maybe I'm just in a Monday mood, but shit like this on the internet pisses me off so much. I have no problem with the Angels tweeting it out. It's quite impressive to hit a golf ball that far. It's everybody else piggy backing off it. There's countless stories today sucking Mike Trout's dick for hitting a golf ball so far like he isn't a freak of nature.
Again, I understand he hit the ball far, but this is Mike fucking Trout. Is anybody really surprised? Did you not see the power numbers I just shared? 285 home runs since he debuted in two-thousand-eleven. (Full time career started in 2012) I've never seen Giannis or Lebron play volleyball either, but I bet they'd be nasty.
Doing something loosely related to what you're already considered the best in the world at does not impress me. Sorry. Let me see Mike Trout kickflip a 6 set, kick a 50 yard field goal or do his own taxes. Then I'll be impressed. Until then you can be like the rest of the sheep making hack Happy Gilmore jokes.
I would NEVER.
