SO GOOD: 7-year-old with cancer scores a long TD at the Nebraska Spring Game. This is must-see stuff (more great vids here).
Manti Te’o is either very gullible or mildly sociopathic…OR, a third possibility, he’s another closeted gay athlete. HERE ARE THE OPTIONS.
An excerpt: There is no evidence to support this. Let me be clear like Obama: I am not calling Manti Te’o a closeted homosexual. But think about the reasons you make up a fake girlfriend, then think about which makes more sense: Boredom, Heisman publicity, or throwing people off the scent of a gay man doing the one thing openly gay men still have never done to this day?
A devout Mormon at a Catholic school, a rugged football player — these are communities that openly reject homosexuality, some of the last remaining vestiges of the decaying closet. There has never been an openly gay athlete in a major American sport, and who knows when that day will come. For now, athletes are pretty freakin’ scared to be the first, even though there could be big endorsement dollars in it for them. Wild speculation, perhaps, but maybe Te’o is just another in a long line of players who would rather live the straight life and not take the risk than declare his true self to the sports world.
With the score tied at 37, Miami Hurricanes QB Stephen Morris rolled to his right and connected with an inexplicably wide-open Phillip Dorsett on a 62-yard strike. Game. Over. How do you let that happen? GIF HERE.
Amazing Racer Justin Kanew on new college football playoffs system: “Every election year we talk about change coming to America. Today, it finally did. Yet it wasn’t the president ‘throwing his weight around,’ as he had promised pretty soon after taking office. It wasn’t congressional legislation, as had sometimes been threatened but was never taken seriously. This was a change that came from below. This was a groundswell. This was a by-the-people, for-the-people victory, and that’s what makes it about more than just football. This was about what’s right.”
