Nothing to see here

Two things on this very bright and cold Friday afternoon: First, heads up to Mgoblog for passing along this beauty of a story by Stewart Mandel. I haven’t commented on the ridiculous West Virginia/"woman scorned"-thing because it really isn’t worth commenting on. However, Mandel commented on it and I’m throwing my support behind his column.

Second, so that’s why the Minnesota Vikings gave up five players and six draft picks for Herschel Walker in 1989. They had to give up fair value for—not one, but—two personalities. The funniest quote that I’ve read in quite a while closes out that story. I didn’t realize Vince Dooley was such a comedian. All jokes aside, Walker is the man. I rushed for over 1,000 yards in many-a-game using Georgia ’80 in Bill Walsh’s College Football for Sega Genesis. The only player in the game who could even compete with him was Bo Jackson on Auburn '84. Hopefully Walker makes life easier for people with multiple personality disorder (dissociative identity disorder) by bringing attention to it. And, hopefully he does more for the disorder than that no-good, lying, Aaron Stampler did in Primal Fear.
