Addison Russell is a guy for which scouts pray the prayer of the scout: When we go to look at his swing, we pray, “Dear Sweet Jesus, Please Let This Guy Hit. Amen.”
I borrowed my own joke from my first book, Willie’s Boys. Check it out. Actually, don’t check it out. Buy a copy. Or I’ll pray the prayer of the author. I know that one, too.
