I don't like sports. Any sports. I'm bad at sports and they are uninteresting to watch. I was pretty sure I was calling bullshit on Gunther just because my friend in high school used to be inside the mascot suit (an elephant) for the minor league games in Modesto, but apparently the A's have minor league teams in every state and provence in North America.
Gunther sure knows a lot about minor league baseball.
At a brief moment in my life, I wanted to work in the baseball industry, and eventually run a minor league franchise. I even interviewed with the Salem-Keizer Volcanos (the Giants A level affiliate at the time). From what I learned, it's a tough industry to get started in, because they pay so little, and you have to put in serious time before you can do it for a living. I decided you need rich parents to make it work, so I moved on.
