Utilityman Willie Bloomquist and catcher Jason Kendall insist they’re serious about this: They intend to pursue an Olympic dream once their playing careers come to a close.
"Two-man bobsled," Bloomquist declared. "2018 Olympics. Ink it. Gold medalists right here. Two-man bobsled."
That neither Bloomquist, 32, nor Kendall, 35, has ever been in a bobsled stands as a deterrent. As Bloomquist reasons, "We’ve got years to train for it."
