“Don’t worry pops.” Riley grinned. “My mission in life is to be better than you in every way.”
Seth laughed. “Good luck kid. But there’s only one Seth Blake.”
– Riley & Seth – Off Season
Name: Riley Sloane
When I joined the Tomcats it was a dream come true. The team has been struggling the last few years but I’m determined to make them a household name again. It’s tough being the new guy but when you’re as talented and highly paid as I am, you’re going to get some haters. And most of them are my teammates.
I’m focused and I know what I need to do. That’s why I don’t understand the owner T.K.’s decision to have me talk to Seth Blake. He’s a legend and all but he’s the past and I’m the future. Sure, I party a lot and have a habit of saying all the wrong things to the media, but hey, it comes with the territory when you’re a hot commodity like me.
I’ll be making my debut in Off Season. I don’t want a mentor but looks like I’m stuck with one. T.K. may be teaching me a lesson for trashing Blake in an interview. Either way, it looks like T.K. is taking Blake’s advice very seriously. So I guess I have to play nice.
Update November 2016:
So much has changed since meeting the Blakes. Seth and his family are now part owners of the team. He’s been mentoring me and I have to admit that he’s given me some good advice. He still keeps an eye on me to make sure I don’t screw up, but I don’t mind. It’s his job and besides, we’re sort of friends when he’s not bossing me around.
My life has gotten complicated recently and I hope to remedy that soon. Too bad it involves getting help from Parker Carson. I’ve never met such a stubborn, maddening woman in my life. So what if she’s beautiful and smart, she’s also crazy. That woman lives to terrorize me. But I know just the trick to throw her off her game…
I made my debut in Off Season. I stirred up some trouble in Worth the Wait. Parker and I finally go toe to toe in Hard Target. Winner takes all.
See you soon,
