Vice Sports on ‘The Soul Crushing Irony of Charlie Brown the Athlete’

Over at Vice Sports, there’s a story about Charlie Brown’s desire to be a great athlete and his complete lack of ability to ever make it a reality.

From the story:

What Schulz creates in Charlie Brown’s baseball career is a pure neurotic flip of that dream, a nightmare where a young man is given pure Athlete Mindset, a need to succeed on his own terms and a craving for success and the love that comes along with success, that is COMPLETELY AND UTTERLY impossible due to a combination of his pure lack of physical or tactical talent and the immense neurosis growing out of that need.
