Is there any doubt Russell Wilson could have been a star in either baseball or football? Frankly, there is no doubt whatsoever. Russell Wilson is a star - period. The Texas Rangers clearly recognized this when they selected him in the Rule 5 draft last week. Who can blame them for taking a longshot at getting this guy?
But come on man - baseball? Over football? Not a chance.
The late George Carlin recognized the dichotomy between these two American sports; and I dare say no one alive today could make it more clear why Russell Wilson made the right choice to become the "field general" for the Seattle Seahawks. If you've never seen this Carlin act before, I hope you have fun with it. It is one of my favorites!
