Becoming a Scooter (Gennett) fan
I’ll admit, I tend to like scrappy players who go all out. Guys named Scooter are automatically going to become guys I root for unless something happens to make me feel otherwise.
Then I met Scooter Gennett and the conversation merely confirmed my earlier thought. It’s hard not to like the guy. Oh, and he can hit. He finished the AFL with a .411, second in the league (Congrats to Jedd Gyorko for winning the batting title). He speaks with the kind of energy he plays with, and with plenty of animation.
Watch the interview and see what I mean. And be sure to watch it until the end — you’ll get to hear the real story about where that first name comes from (hint: it’s Muppet-related).
