Larson fell short of his dreams

Congressman John Larson told  The Hill, a Capitol Hill newspaper, that when he was young, ““I dreamed of playing sports [professionally]. Baseball always had a greater allure, but I loved football too. Realistically, I wanted to be a [high school] teacher and a coach.”

There’s no denying that playing professional baseball is way cooler than being a congressman. 

 [Larson later became a high school history teacher and coached basketball, baseball, and football before becoming a member of Congress.]
