Friedman, Coen, Bohn

When I was growing up and wanted to be a professional baseball player, my dad always told me that it was fairly unlikely that I, or anyone else I knew from the neighborhood, would ever become a professional athlete. Well my dad was certainly right about me, the neighborhood part has been another matter.
T.J. Bohn, an outfielder who was apparently two years behind me at St. Louis Park High School (though I don’t remember him), was called up by the Seattle Mariners earlier this week and made his major league debut (he was sent back down after five games).
Bohn joins the NHL’s Erik Rasmussen as the only SLP natives playing major-league professional sports. We’re better at producing thinkers, I guess. That, and frontmen from Semisonic.

    The ultimate irony, of course, would be if T.J. Bohn’s nickname were “Koko.”
    And T.J. Bohn will never have to change his name to star in pr0n.
