Last night, you may have watched -- OK, you probably did watch -- Boise State's thrilling come-from-behind 33-30 victory over Virginia Tech, making Boise State's case (even this early in the college football season) for the BCS national championship game.â†µâ†µ
Boise State's quarterback Kellen Moore grew up in Prosser, Washington, a town of 6,000 which isn't much more than a dot on the map about 50 miles southeast of Yakima.â†µâ†µ
Yet, according to this CBS Sports profile of Moore, he's a huge Cubs fan:â†µâ†µ
Kellen Moore knows the humble. On this day, he is sitting in the SID's office sweaty from a workout wearing a Cubs T-shirt. Yes, he's a fan. It is a point of pride that during an offseason trip to Wrigley Field he sat "10 rows up and 10 rows across" from the seat formerly occupied by Steve Bartman.â†µâ†µ
Sigh. That was the first paragraph of the article, and the lazy journalist couldn't help making a quote from Moore about Bartman his lede. If you can get past that and the other Cub cliches used, it's a pretty good profile of a kid who has his head on straight and might, in addition to helping his team win a national title, be a Heisman Trophy candidate.
