I had a chance to attend Boston College's annual Fanfest today on campus. I toted along the wife and 15 month old for him to get a chance to meet Baldwin and experience all that I have engrained in him at such a young age. We had a blast and I can say that I had more fun than him!
I had the opportunity to speak briefly with Chase Rettig while the players were signing autographs. He felt like he had a pretty productive year last year and at times the team had their moments but he sees vast improvement this year. Chase was really high on the new coaching staff and was excited for all us fans to see their intensity. He had a great attitude and was excited to start the season.
After going through the autograph line and speaking to all the players, I left astounded. I couldn't help but say over and over to my wife how great these kids were. All of them! They were friendly, intelligent, engaging and loved the little guy. I want these kids to succeed even more now! You walk away feeling proud that they represent BC.
By the way, Matt Patchan has the most badass ponytail I've ever seen.
Got to go on the field for the first time in my life. I was like a little kid. I'm telling you, I enjoyed it more than the little guy.
Great event today and many thanks to BC for putting it on. Get excited for the season. I want it even more for these guys.
