Migs Blog: It's A Paper Airplane Fella!

May 26, 2016

Sometimes I think professional athletes need to remind themselves to have fun.  They are playing a game, getting paid millions to do so…don’t sweat the small stuff!

For instance… Joey Votto needs to relax!  I mean… RELAX!

Who is Joey Votto?  Joey plays first base for the Cincinatti Reds, and they were playing the Dodgers on Tuesday.   Someone threw a paper airplane on the field, and Joey didn't think it was very funny. 

I get not appreciating a paper plane landing on the field, but holy smoke did he get a little to agro on that piece of flying paper!  Check it out:

I don’t want top turn this into a Hockey is better than other sports debate, although I do feel that way…but watch Joe Thornton of the Sharks, and how at the age of 36, he seems to have a kid like mentality to the game.  He was doing a press conference after a game last week where a reporter asked a question that was kind of a shot against his age, and his response was awesome!

I love the reaction of his teammates.  Congrats to Joe and the Sharks, as the team is going to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time in their 25 year history!
