Another Sick Massachusetts Athlete Besides Myself

Tom Glavine did it yesterday, winning his 300th game. Tom is a proud Massachusetts native that grew up in Billerica. His professional career includes 2 Cy Young Awards, 300+ wins, five 20 win seasons, a World Series win & MVP, batting .289 one season, and a hot wife!

Tom, much like a great deal of kids from Massachusetts, grew up playing hockey. He was drafted by the L.A. Kings of the NHL in the 4th round of the 1984 NHL draft but decided to play ball.

Tom has been a legit human being throughout his career. He has a great golf game as well. Let me share a story with you .... I was visiting a friend of mine in the Atlanta suburbs a few years back. I bumped into Tom in the clubhouse, The Country Club of The South. I am NOT an annoying fan like most. My buddy (who is originally from Rosindale) and I introduced ourselves. Next thing you know, Tom gets a phone call and two of the guys couldn't show up. I ended up golfing with him & John Smoltz. Tom & Smoltz got SWASHBUCKLED on the course with my buddy & I. The beer cart seemed to just gravitate towards their cart all the time.

Massachusetts peeps are HILARIOUS humans and some of the world's finest. Being a sick high school athlete like I was...Tom and I had an unreal bond. I feel a part of his 300th win!

Congrats to Tom for continuing a Hall of Fame career and being a fantastic cat from Massachusetts!

Anonymous why not put your name & email down? Perhaps it was and if so I am sorry. What you ought to do is make a post yourself and lets see how funny you are!

We never golfed together. Me and Smoltzie are going to kick your ass next time I'm up in Mass.

I was too wasted to remember if I golfed with you. Wait a minute, are you the one I played 9 holes of naked putt-putt with?

Yeah...I am sorry for letting everyone down. This did suck!
