Last Wednesday afternoon, I was a guest in the NovaCare suite at the Phillies game and ran into former Eagles DT and WIP personality Hollis Thomas. We were talking a bit and someone told him he was free to sit in the seats if he wanted. Hollis said he was worried foul balls would come and hit him. I, of course, said to him, "Hollis don't worry, if a foul ball comes this way, I will catch it." Without hesitation Hollis looks me up and down and says, "nothing about you says athlete."
I tweeted it out with the hashtag #kickballathlete and here is the back and forth that came from it.
@darealtank78 We have to get you to come out to a kickball game…maybe then you will see my athleticism…or well lack of it hahah— Aaron Talasnik (@ATalasnikCSN) August 20, 2014
Well true to his word, after giving him the game time and location yesterday he showed up, played, trash talked and even made some nice plays in the field.
So yeah we have a new second baseman. Hollis Thomas.
