Neal Brown is most well-known for directing the Air Raid offense, but right now he’s staying busy directing T-Ballers as a first bast coach.
Last week I showed you Alex Smith’s commencement speech at the University of Utah, but of course Peyton Manning’s was better. Peyton was the keynote speaker for the commencement of his wife’s alma mater, the University of Virginia, taking the time to call up three graduates to catch a pass from one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game. Pretty cool right? If you take the time and listen to the entire thing, it isn’t that bad for a commencement speech (but if you only want to see the passes, they are three minutes into the video).
The Tour of California is underway in the world of cycling (who knew?). Yesterday a Spaniard thought he was about to win a stage of the race, but unfortunately he began celebrating when there was still a lap to go. The announcer even tried to help him, screaming over the PA system, “NO, NO, NO, NO, NO!” The poor guy ended up finishing 56th instead of 1st.
In another silly video from yesterday, a young Texas Rangers fan was smoother than blue suede shoes. After a coach threw him a game ball, the kid offered it up to the pretty lady behind him. Unbeknownst to her, he actually gave her another ball and kept the game used ball for himself. I could learn a thing or two from this kid.
An Iowa basketball player allegedly punched a guy in the face, knocked him to the ground, and blew a kiss as he walked away. You might think the guy is a badass, but apparently it all happened because of an insulting Tweet. Rod Winkler ain’t got nothin’ on him.
If you couldn’t already tell, I love commencement season. I was a yearbook editor back in the day, so this post from Deadspin makes me smile from ear to ear. The best Senior Quotes come from white kids who quote rappers. It gets better when the words make no sense. Here is a compilation of Senior Quotes that were inspired by rapper Lil B. If anyone can tell me what “Based God” is after this I’d appreciate it.
