Thanks, Matt. I had not connected all the dots on Votto’s extracurriculars. He has his jerk moments but I do like him more after reading your article. He’s entertaining. I’ve always wondered why NFL players give footballs to the front row kids so the Votto action was aces apart from the obvious fact that any kid should never be spoken to that way. It’s not the kid’s fault daddy has done well.

Also, the attack on the Ringer website and this article in the comments is laughable. Who reads articles on websites they don’t like? It’s entertainment folks. Chill Out!
