Reading children’s fan mail to famous sports stars is usually about as compelling as watching Chris Berman pick lint from his bellybutton. But thanks to the sheer spitefulness on display, this letter from a young fan to Bengals punter Kevin Huber is extremely compelling.
Last Sunday night, Huber’s jaw was broken on a dirty hit from Steelers linebacker Terence Garvina. Outraged by the lack of sportsmanship, Nicholas Andrew Johnson, the child in question, took the time to write a letter to Huber, and his disdain for Garvina was on full display. This level of anger would be impressive coming from a junior high student, so considering this kid is only seven-years old, I think it’s safe to say he’s a prodigy.
“I hope that Steeler player loses his house and has to live in his car.”
Yikes, this kid’s got a future in snarky sports blogging.
At any rate, well done, son. And if it’s any consolation, Garvin’s helmet-to-helmet hits are bound to bring about early onset dementia, so the chances of him living out of his car aren’t as bad as you might think.
