Shout-Outs: The Kunkels

I just wanted to take a little space here to give a shout-out to my good friends—and former roommates—Mike and Alicia Kunkel.

I’ve known Mike since I was in middle school and Alicia since she moved to the Hartley in high school.

They’re two of the finest people that you’ll ever meet. In fact, they received an unofficial shout-out from me earlier this year.

As such, I’m proud to give them a legit shout-out and announce that they’ve just had their first baby!!

That’s right folks, I’m a quasi-uncle, yet again.

Samuel Michael Kunkel was born Monday morning at 8:40am (that’s Central time, y’all),

The future Major League Baseball Hall of Famer weighed in at 7 lbs 13.2 ozs and 19 3/4 inches long.

Major props to Mike and Alicia who have both been ready to be parents for years, I have no doubt that they’ll be absolutely awesome playing the roles of Mom and Dad from here on out.

Plus, the kid’s going to need a publicist at some point and everyone knows I like 15% off the top as much as the next guy!! 😉
