2008 is my year guys. I feel it right now. Spring Training has been constantly kicking my ass, but in a good way. I have been gaining some attention from local media and was even interviewed on a telecast about what I will bring to the team in 2008, among other stuff.
I think back to when I was hurt and training to get back to this point and I am very excited about the chance to make a roster spot. Right now, AAA ball is in my future but the manager knows my name and a few Veterans have played some pranks on me, which is a good sign.
Ryan has been sending me some raunchy text messages which make me smile during the day when I see them. This semester he is taking 2 classes and has a lot of time on his hands. I am pretty excited about seeing him because all of this jerking off alone in the shower blows.
Ask Slugger time...
"sounds like what you and ryan have is pretty awesome. as a closeted dude myself, i would really dig finding a situation like that. lol ryan have a brother? also not gonna lie: very curious about what you were referring to with jp, but i'm sure you'll reveal that in your own time."
Well, I kinda threw that out there without bringing it up to JP first. I was refering to JP being a guy that I have had sex with and since he hasn't told the story, I will.
JP and I met at a football camp in middle school. We were bunkmates. That sumer, I got to know JP and the guys from his town and for some reason was very drawn to JP. We would talk about sports, football, back home and were on the beginning stages of puberty.
Two weeks of sleep away camp and JP and I were like best friends. I had seen him naked since we all had to shower in the gang bang style of showers, plus around the bunk most guys were only wearing shorts because it was so hot and we had no A/C.
At the end of camp JP and I exchanged e-mail and phone numbers. About two weeks later he called and asked if I wanted to go camping up at his uncles house in vermont. My parents said it was ok.
His parents drove us up to the lake house in Vermont and we had an awesome time. It was there where JP and I shared a tent by the lake and did not have anyone around us. Without going into much detail J and I explored a lot about ourselves. His family has an amazing house on this huge lake and we went fishing, hiking, and even got to take a boat out by ourselves. We were bad ass.
That next summer, after football camp, I went up again and that is when we sealed the deal, so to speak.
JP and I have been close since camp. We both grew up in different states but always kept in touch somehow. When I started the blog, I sent him the link because I wanted to see what he thought. He has been a constant friend and someone I can lean on when I have problems and need to talk about "gay stuff"
We both have our own issues, but what's cool is that this guy who I explored with when I was younger knows a lot more about me than my close team mates, best college friends and even my siblings.
Keep the Ask Slugger questions coming.
