If this is true — and why wouldn't it be? — then gotDAMN, Pete Hughes:
Just imagine being one of Hughes' baseball players at Virginia Tech.
"Coach, my throat hurts today. And I have an econ exam tomorrow. And my girlfriend just called me. Can I leave practice early?"
"I had a heart attack and drove myself to the hospital."
"I'll grab my glove."
Even Chuck Norris appreciates the shoutout.
Be well, Coach Hughes.
