The Dude Of The Week: 5/28/17
"The Dude Of The Week" first started on my Facebook page in March 2009, because I didn't know what to do with that text box that they added underneath your profile picture. Finally, I thought the perfect way to utilize that useless addition would be to present the latest "man crush" that I've developed over the past seven days. I did it for six years straight, week after week without interruption - until I stopped. Now, with the success of The Keystone Statement, I bring DOTW back from it's Internet depths. So without any more verbal garbage, here it is.
I'm not a huge college football guy, but I am a football guy and guess what? So is this week's induction - probably the biggest football guy to walk planet earth if you ask him: Mr. Jim Harbaugh.
Some of you may know him as the current head coach of the Michigan Wolverines who Trent Balky ran out of San Fran after he brought the 49ers franchise back to notoriety for those couple seasons. If you're a non-sports enthusiast you may just know him as the guy who gave Pope Francis a fresh pair of Air Jordans and was on Saved By The Bell that one time, but either way he gets the nod because of the interview he did with the guys on Pardon My Take last week.
The guy loves football. Absolutely loves it. He has sleepovers with recruits so he gets to meet their entire family, still has vivid dreams of playing football, and even when he first started coaching in his forties he wanted to use his off seasons to play Arena Football. Plus, he really likes the Pope , delivers baby calves and drinks milk like it's nobody's business. Even if it's Vinny Testaverde and "The U" all the way for me, I be rooting for Jimmy up in Ann Arbor too.
