Switching Teams

by Larry Chiang on May 16, 2012

By Larry Chiang

I’m a Cubs fan.

That was a tough 28 year haul. Now I’m a Yankees fan. Hate the Yankees?? Well then love me because the NY Yankees are cellar dwellers.

Switching teams is tougher for players.

Here are the things that sports agents are mentoring their athletes on:

-1- Charm the Town.

When the Warriors franchise player was moved to Milwaukee, he took out a huge full page ad to say hi to the town.

Kinda cool.

-2- Be low man on the totem pole.

Albert Pujolz is the new guy so as new guy, he does what new guys do which is show up early to hustle and reported day negative 12 (It’s when pitchers and catchers report. It’s almost two weeks before position players report for duty.

-3- Buy a house.

Nothing say mercenary more than a four seasons condo residence.

A VC friend of mine has a bang algorithm. FUCY-VC. You should google it. Basically, it says you’re way more likely to bang the wrong woman if you have a condo in ‘the city’.

Buy a house in the city of your new team.

-4- Cite a Legendary Alum, Be a Fan

Be a fan too.
