Who says cheerleaders don’t know a lot about football? Well, last Monday, I experienced what could be argued to be the greatest moment in college football history. My Daddy’s team, Go Broncos, introduced Cinderella to Lady Liberty. The result was part fairy tale, part American Dream come true.
So, I’ve never heard so many men talk about Cinderella before. I thought that was a chick flick!? But Boise State sure did show those evil stepsisters who wears the prettiest gown! (I’m just learning about metaphors, so I’m not really sure if this is appropriate…oh well).
All I know is that my Daddy sure went crazy! He ran around screaming, picked me up and ran outside and honked his horn. When everything was said and done, I will always remember seeing the little guy beat the big guy with a magical mix of determination and imagination. I wonder if they’ll let me play football someday??
