Nate Schierholtz' Brothers

Yesterday, during Game 4, Tim McCarver had some interesting things to say about Nate Schierholtz. Allow me to paraphrase his comments below:

Tim McCarver: "I'm an idiot. I'm an idiot. Something stupid. You know most father's that are skateboarders tend to have sons that are skateboarders (Editor's Note: He actually said that last sentence. I'm not sure where he pulled that wisdom from, most likely out of his ass).

...
but unlike his father, who was a skateboarder, Nate Schierholtz is a baseball player." (said that line too)

"He also has a younger brother, Vai who plays at Air Force"

(I thought McCarver said that his brother's name was Vibe, which sparked my interest in writing this. Even though my brief internet search found that his brother's true name was Vai it leads me to the same question: How can you name one son something boring like Nate and the other Vai???? I don't understand how that is possible. Sure, the father's name is also Vai, but if that name wasn't good enough for the first son, why is it good enough for the 2nd? This is similar to naming one of your sons Joe and the other one Crazy Horse. I absolutely hate when parents name one of their kids something wacky. It means that Wacky son is thinking, what the fuck drugs were the parents on when they named me, and boring son to think "wow, I have a fucking lame name, I must be a complete suckass".)


Also, during my short stint with the Google search, I found they have another brother named Cainan! Cainan, Vai... and Nate. Oh, and Cainan is their families turd. Not only is he not a successful baseball player, his only available news is that he was charged with a DUI, hit and run, and everyone in the family feels very ashamed of him.
