Barry Fuggin Sanders

14 04 2009

I’m a Detroit Lions fan. That’s the equivalent of being a Nazi supporter at a Liptonstein family reunion.

But, during my youth one man made the constant post season triage worth it. We had something no else did; an alien life form with abnormally large thighs and a freakishly humble attitude. Why he stayed with us so long, only he knows. I suspect he’ll take it to his grave. 

We had Barry Fuggin’ Sanders.

from 1989-1998 he made Detroit Football worth watching. We might not “win” but we’d sure as hell be in Sports Center’s Top 10 plays. Barry Is the rightful owner of the all-time rushing record and Emmit knows it. 

You can see why. He only started one season at Oklahoma State in college. That one season is often called the greatest in the history of Collegiate Football. This video shows why. Enjoy and then cry. Cause there’s no way we’ll ever get him back.
