My Dear Jane Letter to Baseball and Basketball

Keith BrantleyCorrespondent IJuly 27, 2009

I need you to come in and have a seat, we need to talk.  I have been meaning to do this for a while.

I haven’t been around a lot lately, and you have probably noticed me becoming more distant.  Ever since we reunited in February, I thought I could stick it out this year.  The truth is I can’t give you the commitment you deserve.   

I have reconnected with some old friends and met new ones, all because of you. 

I simply can’t do this anymore.  We have been living a lie for some time, and it is time to move on for good.   You must be suspicious of the rumors.  I am sorry, but it’s true, I am leaving you for the Saints.  The NFL and the Saints in particular have always been my one true love.  They were my first you know?

I can tell you that I will miss you.  March Madness wouldn’t have been the same without you.  The NBA finals are one of my fondest memories.  Then we had the CWS together.  What a special time that was.  We’ll always have that night we stayed up drinking tequila, and LSU winning again!

Then we had the MLB All star game.  I will cherish that week in July.

There is something else you should know – over the years there have been others.  Then there was that weekend with Hockey.  I’d rather not go into it, I was very drunk, it really didn’t mean anything.  When I am with Football, I can be the real me.

It really is my fault; this has nothing to do with you. 

I hope we can still be friends.

I do not know about you, But, I AM READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!!!!!!

Camp starts this week.
