Beating Mantle

Watching Pawn Stars:

GIDEON (Age 8): Daddy, who’s Mickey Mantle?
ME: He was one of the best baseball players ever. He was a center fielder and first baseman for the New York Yankees, and hit 536 career home runs.
GIDEON: Phhhhht! I can hit more home runs than that!
ME: That’s great! And how do you plan on hitting more than 536 home runs? Are you going to work extra hard and practice batting every day?
GIDEON: Hmmmmm…No, I’ll just start my baseball career now.
