That Sounds Fun Episode 7 with Connor Harrell

You just cannot know how much I like the dude who is on the podcast today.

Like, Connor is the kind of friend that I think I’m gonna have forever. I call him my brother. His family feels like my family. I want to keep them. For always. That’s my plan. I tend to force people into lifelong friendship. It’s going great so far.

Here’s my two favorite posts about him that already exist on the blog (just so you can get to know him a bit):

A sweet circle. (This also includes a video of Connor hitting a grand slam, which is incredible.)

Looking forward. (Still makes me cry.)

(I won’t embarrass him by linking to the post where he is wearing the I Am A Girl of Grace tshirt.)

So before Connor headed to spring training with the Tigers, I sat down with him and we chatted about what life is like for a professional baseball player. And talking to my friends who become family who become professional athletes? That Sounds Fun to me. 🙂

Here is the real question that Connor and I sadly still do not know the answer to for ourselves or each other. We ran out of time to push ourselves to the limit before he went to Florida. Whah whah.

How many hot Krispy Kreme donuts could you eat in one sitting?

    I didn’t listen yet, but I did go back and read the old links. And can I tell you how full this makes my heart? I am a Vandy grad and a HUGE baseball fan. and to see my guys (well, you aren’t really my guys because I haven’t even met you in person. BUT all Vandy people are my people because I am one) … so to see my guys with hearts for the Lord, and giving back to the community … and to see you cross my Five Minute Friday crowd and my (in)courage crowd? This is a SMALL WORLD and I LOVE IT!!

    Best of luck with the Tigers, Connor. And forever #AnchorDown.

    I love this Annie! I am a huge baseball fan, so I love hearing all about baseball stuff. Especially from the players themselves who are in the majors. I think interviews and stuff like this are so good because it helps people remember that pro Athletes are regular people too just like the rest of us. Connor seems so awesome. This video makes me want to be friends with him. I’ll be praying for his career with Detroit, his faith, and contentment. I am a Red Sox fan forever, and a Braves fan second, but I have no problem pulling for Detroit and Connor. So, GO TIGERS! Accept when they play the Sox. And thank goodness he is not with the Yankees! Love ya Annie.
