Robert “Slow Poke” Lanier


Slow Poke

Q: Slow Poke. How’d you get that nickname?

A: I used to be fast so the name was meant as a joke.  Now that I am old and fat I guess the joke is on me.

Q: What bat do you use?

A: I don’t care for bats, they are like flying rats.

Q: What positions do you play?

A: I prefer to play standing up, but will play sitting if the situation allows.

Q: What’s your favorite moment from last season?

A: I greatly enjoyed the philosophical and intellectual debates with Brass Hands.

Q: What are you looking forward to most this season?

A: Winning the Sulphur Dell Cup, of course.
