All D3 superstars have a beginning....a place where they planted their roots, and sprung into a larger than life figure. A place where they crushed $9.99 30 racks of Red Dog, smoked cigarettes in between classes like an alpha, while washing the taste out of their mouth with a fat lipper. A place where batting practice and partying came before studying. A place where it takes 5 years for a bachelors opposed to 4 because you took the minimum amount of classes every semester. A place where your parents tried to give you money one semester for books, but you pissed it away on the roulette table.
D3 superstars like Thrilly put in the work like all the greats before him, and his house was Fitchburg State University. Somewhere in Mara Village, a popular dorm complex on Fitchburg's campus, a young stud is taking dry hacks in the mirror with his shirt off. He's blasting 80s rock, probably eye of the tiger. He's got the stove smelling like fresh scrambies. He's got the protein shaker cups stacked in the sink, and a coffee mug with 3 scoops in it ready to chug. He's got an Igloo water jug filled with John Fitch Vodka and fruit. He's ready to point and take any flooze he chooses.
He loves the smell of pine tar. Any of that trendy chewing gum is beta as fuck compared to Big League Chew. He loves the sound of solid contact on a wood bat over any music. He thinks BBCOR bats are pussy as fuck, compared to the lightening bolts they used to have in the day.
No matter how big or how small, every college campus morphs into the center of the universe for the D3 superstar. Every hero started in the same place you did, so how bad do you want it? When that beta is studying for an A on a bullshit English class you know you have to do no work to get a C on, and in turn you go and rip soft toss and tee work while he betas out, that's how winning is done.
Strut your shit, bros over hoes, and ALWAYS sit inside fastball 2-0 and take a fucking hack. Congrats to the Fitchburg State University Baseball team on starting out with a W and keep crushing.
