Yes, the Walkers are heading to New York City. It’s been nearly a month-and-a-half since I got hired on April 10, and during that span, I’ve realized that Barstool fits me like a fuckin’ glove.
So when Dave asked me if I’d be willing to move to New York to be closer to the action, I said “Hell yes.”
Bottom line is I want to make the very most of this opportunity that’s been laid upon my lap, so I’m putting myself into position to make plays. We should be there by mid-August.
Here are the reactions from my immediate circle upon learning the news that we’re headed north:
My mom: “Shut up. You are not.”
Uncle Donnie: “You shittin’ me.”
Anonymous Barstool employee No. 1: “You sure about this?”
My wife: “I’ll go wherever you go because I’m lucky to be married to a dime-piece like you.”
I made that last one up.
So I’ll be real with you. I never thought I’d have a chance like this, but I’m gonna fuckin’ kill it. And if you’re worried about a redneck like me making this transition, I must tell you that we’ve only lived back in Mississippi for six months. We lived in Atlanta for the previous three years, and I lived in northern Virginia before that. So we’re not completely straight off the turnip truck.
A little about me: I have a wife and four kids between the ages of 3-10. My kids are a little nervous but excited. My 10-year-old daughter has taken it the worst but she’s a huge fan of pizza and diners so I’ve convinced her that a whole new world is about to open up for her. My 8-year-old just wants to see the Statue of Liberty. My 6-year-old can’t wait to see the tall buildings. My 3-year-old hasn’t expressed his thoughts yet but he still occasionally shits himself, so who gives a damn about his opinion?
Anyway, I’d headed to headquarters full-time. I’ll be producing a ton of content, which will include college football, gambling and Playstation 2 sports games.
So get the fuck ready.
Also, watch Walk The Line each day at 6 p.m. Eastern on @barstoolgamblin periscope. Even if you’re not a gambler, it’s entertaining.
