Buy me dinner, get drafted

ESPN's draft profile of Peter Skoronski

With Bijan Robinson going 8th and this guy (Peter Skoronski) going 11th overall in the NFL Draft, my family and I coincidentally had dinner within like 10 feet of two different top NFL draft picks in the last 6 months. Both at same shopping/dining area in Frisco.

(Bijan ate some sort of seafood thing and Skoronski had pasta.)

Moral of the story, eat dinner with (ok ok, near me) me and you’re guaranteed to become a top NFL draft pick.

Earl got up: Inside the second act of a Texas legend

Texas RB Earl Campbell vs Oklahoma

ESPN has a fantastic, difficult profile of Texas running back legend Earl Campbell and his life during and after college and pro football. Longhorn fans have seen Earl unable to get out of the golf cart on sidelines for years, but the reasons were a lot more complicated than just a career of hard nosed running.

Turns out, the player known for being one of the toughest runners in the history of football was unknowingly playing with spinal stenosis his entire life, a diagnosis that today immediately ends careers. A wrong hit any time in his career could have sent him to a wheelchair 30 years ago.

So happy to know that Earl has gotten the medical help and counseling help he needed and like the article title says, has gotten back up again.
