I’m NOT That Frank Viola!

I Be Not Dis Frank Viola

I’m just a young kid with a dream . . . but my childhood dream of pitching in the Majors didn’t quite pan out.


My middle name is Anthony, by the way. Can you believe that? :-(

Please tell me I’m better looking than this guy! Dat photo certainly not be me.


Dis Frank Viola Be Me

So to put any confusion to rest, as God is my witness –

I have nevah evah played baseball for the Major Leagues.

And as God is my witness –

I have nevah evah committed a sexual offense.

I am the other Frank Viola . . . just a kid with a dream. The Italian guy who loves the Lord Jesus and whom Jesus loves back with great affection. The guy who is trying to glorify God with my life, my words, and my heart – however imperfect and frail they may be – the best I know how.

Just a kid with a dream, my friends, just a kid with a dream.

Two sad cheers for mistaken identities.

    When I first encountered your blog I wondered briefly if you had pitched for the Twins, but I think I figured out somehow that you weren’t “dat” Frank Viola. But thanks for the humorous and self-deprecating confirmation anyway!
