I realize this is the second sports-related article I’ve re-posted in as many days, but ESPN.com served up another feel-good football story. This one is about Iowa’s favorite son, Kurt Warner. I remember going to a University of Northern Iowa game as a kid and watching Warner play QB for the team that eventually lost to Marshall in the Division I-AA college football championship game. When he made headlines in the late-90s as a “grocery store shelf stocker turned NFL MVP”, I enjoyed seeing national media outlets do live reports from the Cedar Falls Hy-Vee. It’s been fun to follow the roller coaster that has been Warner’s football career for the past 15+ years.
This article, part of ESPN.com’s “NFL Hot Read” series, provides a fascinating glimpse into the juxtaposition that is Kurt Warner. There is a lot to comment on in this piece…but I should probably head to bed so Santa can make a cameo.
