WASHINGTON (WUSA) -- The roommate relationship between Washington Nationals relief pitchers Tyler Clippard and Drew Storen has been a discussed topic in frequent mediums.
Storen joined Holden and Danny on 106.7 The Fan Tuesday morning -- their radio program covers the Nats more religiously than any other. When asked about what he ate for breakfast, Storen answered that he ate a plain omelette. But that's not the interesting part.
"No I don't do it myself. My buddy does it," laughed Storen. "I'm not much of a cooker.
"It's my buddy from home. He does a good job cooking omelets. He hooks it up.
"You gotta' start the day the right way."
This prompted some boisterous laughter and curiosity by the radio hosts, who then followed up with this question:
106.7 The Fan: "Is this like Turtle [from the HBO show Entourage] in your posse?"
Storen: "I guess that's one way to say it. He lived with us last year too. He showed off his good work of omelet-action last year. We gotta' bring him back because it works."
It was later revealed that Storen and Clippard's buddy is named Keller and also lives with the pair. If he truly is like Turtle on Entourage, he also drives the pitchers around town and sets them up with attractive woman.
This interview made me realize two separate things:
1) I really miss the show Entourage. Even if some of the later seasons weren't as compelling, the guys lifestyle on the show pretty much mirror how my ideal life would look like. Parties, jets, women, money, etc.
2) How many athletes have "Turtle" like assistants? I'd say close to 25 percent. If you are in your young twenties and have millions of dollars, why wouldn't you want one of your friends running errands for you? Having people you trust is a key thing when you're famous.
