We finally have an idea of what Harold Reynolds wants to do with the rest of his life, and it involves spending time at Omaha High Schools. I guess if he can't come back to Omaha do do College World Series games, Harold Reynolds can always inspire today's youth. Reynolds recently came to town with Twins Centerfielder Torii Hunter and two guys I've never heard of. Seems our man Harold has bigger fish to fry while his lawyer's work on their plan to sue ESPN and hopefully remember to bring up the whole Sean Salisbury/cell phone incident. Harold's taking his game to Omaha area schools, inspiring young minds.
But not to worry, HR's new program, tentatively called "Game Plan", has dreams of bringing in the likes of Michael Jordan, Barry Sanders, Jerry Rice, John Elway and Jerome Bettis (who I think is from Detroit) to Omaha.
This story, which first appeared in the Omaha World Herald, obviously didn't receive any play on ESPN. According to the article, Reynolds says, "My message is all about encouraging people to get the most out of who they are, to be able to share that, that to me is what's important." The story does not mention whether or not HR brought along some Bloomin' Onions from the Outback Steakhouse for the kids to enjoy.
The CWS, Omaha's future, and all Outback Steakhouses just aren't going to be the same.
