Still Perfect

Tad Crawford (CREDIT:

Tad Crawford '07 and the B.C. Lions are now 5-0 after beating the Calgary Stampeders 32-27 last night.

I don't know if Crawford or Calgary's Anthony Gargiulo, Dartmouth '05, made a huge impact. But Gargiulo did get four tackes and this article refers to Tad peforming well last night despite being tested a number of times.

Still, it's nice to see Tad has hooked up with what looks like the CFL's best team, (the Lions won the Grey Cup last season).

Interesting Perspective

Sorry if this brings things down a bit, but check out this essay by the sister of a top New Jersey high school football player who's being recruited by a lot of Ivies. Definitely a tear-jerker at some points, but I suppose we all had our teenage angst.

I bet (and hope) Arielle's essay gets a very wide distribution. Parents divorced at age one, a stepmother, and a star older brother--not an easy path. I'd have more angst than she shows. College will be a nice change--no one will know her brother.

Caught the final quarter of Tadd'd game last night on SNY. He got to play significant minutes as a free safety. After a key TD late in the game, the Calgary team went for a 2 point conversation which would have made a three point difference with about 1:30 to go. Tadd broke up the pass to keep the a five point difference in the score. He played well.

Thanks so much for that added info about Tad's game last night. It looks like he's really doing well as a special teams... er, specialist. I'm sorry I didn't know SNY was broadcasting the game or I would have let people know beforehand.

Hey, that little girl is a terrific writer. If her brother's really smarter than she is he must be a future Rhodes Scholar. You have nothing to be ashamed of Arielle -- go for the gold!
