Nolan Ryan and I are more similar than I ever thought.
No, I cannot throw a 109 mile-per-hour fastball and I don’t have 5,714 strikeouts — I do have about half of that total throughout my nights at the bar, however. I will never don a jersey to play in a Major League Baseball game and I will never throw a no-hitter, let alone seven.
