Hunt Traded to Georgian Heights
Monday, September 24, 2012
COLUMBUS, OH (AP) - Inside sources have confirmed that ace Lindbergh Elementary 4th grade teacher Bob Hunt has been traded to Georgian Heights Alternative for an undisclosed sum. An official announcement is expected to be made soon, with an evening press conference likely to follow. Hunt, 44, taught intermediate grades at Lindbergh for 11 years and had just started his twelfth consecutive season with the Lions.
"I must admit I didn't see this coming," revealed Hunt in a phone interview this morning. "It's especially difficult to make this change with the season already underway, but that's the nature of the game. Every teacher knows that any day could be your last with any particular organization, so you learn to take it one day at a time. Teaching's been very good to me, and I'm grateful to my teammates and the fans for 11 great years at Lindbergh."
In an unconventional concession, Hunt will play two more games with the Lions this week before reporting to the Georgian Heights camp on Friday. Sources say the arrangement will allow Hunt to dazzle his fans and soak in the love of his admirers one more time before driving off the premises for good. Bob Hunt BOBblehead Night, previously scheduled for Wednesday, will go on as planned.
While taken aback by the news, Hunt waxed philosophical and emphasized the positives. "They (Georgian Heights) have a great organization, wonderful fan support, and a beautiful new facility. I'm excited to join the 4th grade staff, I'm bringing my A game, and I hope to be a key factor in getting us to the playoffs."
Although neither side would comment on this story, insiders report that Lindbergh will acquire five reams of copy paper and a gross of Smencils in the trade.
