“It always kind of bugged me when guys came out of retirement,” said Mike at a press conference to announce his return. “I didn’t really think it was a possibility. I just thought about the opportunity. How good this team is. About the run last year, and what could be. I got a blessing from family and my wife.
“Carrie asked me every few days if I was going to do it. She wanted me to do it. And she’s usually right.”
This is happening! Fish is back! So proud of you, baby! We want the cup!!! https://t.co/ohP7zPtT1s
