When you live in a small town, it’s big news when you have even one or your residents achieve a measure of fame. This year Sikeston has had two hometown natives rise to national prominence, Neal E. Boyd and Blake Dewitt. I’ve tried to blog occasionally about both of them.
Last night one of our local TV stations aired an interview with Blake. I wanted to provide a link to it for a couple of reasons. One, if you’re a Blake DeWitt fan who lives outside the area, you’re probably not even aware of the interview. Two, it gives you a pretty good idea of how down-to-earth Blake is.
It’s been fun this year rooting for someone that I know personally, and that has the kind of attitude Blake has. It has turned this life-long Cardinals fan (and a lot of others in this small town) into a Dodgers fan.
Here’s the interview. If that link doesn’t take you directly to the video, you may have to find it on the KFVS12 home page. I hope you enjoy it.
