Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco is the latest baseball player to take credit for an article on the Player’s Tribune while the real writer sits in the background, unrecognized. In it, Carrasco says he ate pizza for 90 days straight because he couldn’t speak English at that’s the only thing he knew how to order.
During my first spring training, I ate Domino’s pizza every day for dinner.
I’m not exaggerating. I had Domino’s every … single … day. It was the only thing I knew how to order.
So for 90 days, I ate pizza. I ordered it so much that the Domino’s near our facility ended up giving me one month of free pizza as a reward for being their best customer.
Please join me in giving the middle finger to Carrasco. Yes, that’s out of pure jealousy. I’ll never know what it’s like to come to a foreign country and not know the language or culture at all, but if it involves eating pizza for 90 straight days and eventually becoming a professional athlete, I think I’ll be okay.
I would not make it to 90 days straight of pizza because I would die before that. If I have pizza three days in a row I feel like I’m constantly sweating after somebody rubbed grease all over my face and body for six hours. If I could somehow do this every day I would be the happiest person in the world. Maybe Domino’s would get old, but they have enough variety and dipping sauces to keep it interesting for a while. I mean, I’m literally making myself hungry right now. Damn you garlic knots.
