Back in my day at Purdue I was a weeknight warrior for flag football. I formed a team my senior year with National Broadcasting Society and we were called The P Spot. I am proud to say that over a four game season I caught half of our touchdown passes.That was one touchdown pass.
You see, we weren't very good, especially when i was one of the most athletic on the team and I had never actually played football before. Even worse, the ACL curse was effective back then as Ross Kinsey (yes, THE Ross Kinsey of WANE sports in Ft. Wayne) tore his ACL on the finely smooth IM fields while returning a punt.
Some better weeknight warriors were featured last night on SportsCenter, however, and they lead off today's Boilermakings:
