Boone Bartlome, the Kuna football player who broke his neck in the State quarterfinals last week had a surprise visit from Coach Pete yesterday and responded by moving his arm and shoulders—something he hadn't been able to do since shattering his C4 vertebrae. Boise State is helping with Boone's recovery effort and has extended free tickets to tomorrow's game to the entire Kuna football team and their families, and will have a tribute to Boone during the game. Here's to a full recovery, Boone.
And Boise State football not ranked anywhere. The descent into Bizarro World is now complete. Oh, and Boise State takes on Simpson University tonight at Taco Bell Arena. Yes...THAT Simpson University.
The New York Jets just signed veteran safety Ed Reed, who's worn Kyle's number (20) for years. Some thought Wilson would be magnanimous about allowing Reed a jersey number reunion. They thought wrong:
"Nah, I’m not trying to talk about that," Wilson said. Pressed a little further, Wilson said, "I’m not going to discuss that with you guys."
Bob Behler, the voice of the Broncos, rates himself a "2" on the homer scale
For the record, no writer on this site is below a 12.
Inability to get the defense off the field leads to more snaps, which leads to me getting angry, which leads to me punching my TV, which leads to my knuckles being badly bruised. So, yes...I think there's something to that theory.
ETC: This man is a HERO.
