Milk is a very important source of protein and Vitamin D, especially for young children. It helps the kids develop strong bones and muscles. It also goes great with cereal, but that is another discussion. One young Michigan Wolverines fan knows how important milk is, but he wanted to know how much he had to drink to be a big football star one day.
The fan is Brady Carpenter. At the Michigan Youth Day a few weeks ago, he asked head coach Jim Harbaugh that exact question and it was absolutely the cutest thing you could ever imagine.
WXYZ in Detroit shared the video of Carpenter asking Harbaugh how much milk he had to drink to be quarterback. All Harbaugh could do was smile, give him a hug, and say “Drink as much milk as your little belly can hold.”
After Carpenter stole the show at the media day, Fairlife Milk, a Coca-Cola company, reached out to his family. The company wants to see Carpenter succeed in his goal of becoming a quarterback one day, so they are helping him in the biggest way possible.
“We would love to be the milk that helps Brady become a superstar quarterback! Give us a call, Brady’s parents, and let’s get you the milk he needs to be the next great QB,” Fairlife posted on the company’s Facebook page. The company offered the fan a lifetime supply of milk.
With the way milk prices continue to rise, I think he has just lucked out and should take that offer as soon as possible. I’m sure he will drink as much as he needs to take the field at The Big House one day.
