Down Goes Bradford!! (Am I Getting Old?)


I don't know if I'm getting old but I actually kept all inside when Bradford went down.  I didn't jump up and down and scream "SUCK IT BRADFORD!" at the TV with my eight-year old daughter and ten-year old son watching.

My son has a game tomorrow and somehow if that were one of his opponents, I wouldn't want him glad that someone got hurt.   I have always hated Bradford as much as anyone.  It just seems, however, that this guy took a big risk to come back.  Yes, it was to beat Texas and win a championship for today's LOSERS.  That said, I can't help but think that it was also partially for our entertainment as college football fans.

The Big East (as crappy a conference as it is) is running an ad campaign about sportsmanship and it features all of these kids repeating the things they hear their dads yell at the TV or the players.   Yes, it's cheesy but I guess, in my case it made me hold up because I want my kids to be better people than I. 


I wouldn't go so far as to say that I wasn't thrilled to see him in street clothes and have him stay on the sideline for three quarters.  I find it interesting that he and The Colt are such good friends and I guess if it's good enough for The Colt, it should be good enough for me.
