Our original plan was to bring you our favorite football reads and/or links every Friday. That’s kinda still the plan, but we’re not holding ourselves to every Friday because we have “real” jobs and other stuff to do, like laundry and grocery shopping.
Have you ever looked at a pile of laundry and thought to yourself, “That’s terrifying. If that pile falls over, I could actually suffocate and die.” That’s my life right now.
Anyway, enough about my dirty laundry. This is what you should read/watch while you’re pretending to do work this afternoon:
1) Football is Full of Heart (Peter King, Monday Morning Quarterback) – I’m sure you’ve heard the Devon Still story. Still is the Bengals player who was originally cut and then brought back onto the practice squad so that he could keep his insurance and pay for his daughter’s cancer treatment. This hits home for us because of the Delaware connection – Still went to high school there and it’s where his daughter currently resides. We can attest to the fact that A.I. duPont Children’s Hospital is one of the best, so we are sending positive thoughts to the Still family!
2) Fake Punt Collapse – This may have shown up on your Facebook feed, but I don’t care. You should watch this again because it is so bizarre and hilarious. If an Oscar nomination doesn’t come out of this, I won’t know what to do with myself.
3. Freddie Falcon Takes Care of Business – Have you ever seen a falcon tackle a pirate? I hadn’t before now and I think my life has actually changed for the better. What’s really sad is how this video actually foreshadowed the end result of the game (Atlanta 56, Tampa Bay 14). Ouch.
