Since the winter can be an especially tough time to drum up #hot #relatable #content, I decided to try something different. I asked every Twins player I could find in the dugout over the season’s final weekend the following question:
“What would you be doing for work if you weren’t a professional baseball player?”
So for each player, I’ll ask Twitter what they think, and every good-faith answer will be used.
Sound good? Good.
The player: Joseph Patrick Mauer
Joe: *thinks for a second* “That’s a great question.”
Brandon: “You’ve been doing this a long time; maybe you haven’t really thought about it? You could be a quarterback, I guess?”
Joe: “Yeah. I was going to play some quarterback in college. I don’t know. That’s a great question. Been doing this a long time — like you said — maybe…I don’t know, to be honest. No idea.”
Joe: “Yeah. Sorry I don’t have a good answer for you right now.”
