Cardinals P Joe Kelly wrote a hilarious essay in elementary school
St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Joe Kelly is exactly where he wants to be in life. We know this because the the 25-year-old wrote an essay in elementary school that predicted his future. As of now, he’s right on schedule.
Earlier this summer, Kelly shared a photo of the essay he wrote when he was just a young lad. In it, he predicted that he would be a professional baseball player in 10 years. Although he may not be the home run hitter that he envisioned, the baseball part worked out as planned. We’re praying the rest also comes to fruition. Read the letter and you’ll see why:
I don’t know how Kelly was given a “B” for being such an incredible dreamer, but that essay looked perfect to me. Who doesn’t want to be an MLB player and then scuba dive for gold? Confidence at a young age is the key to success in adulthood.
