Dan Thompson, Director of External Affairs at Fork Union Military Academy, suggests that I may need to root for the Dallas Cowboys and their 3 Fork Union alumni (Eddie George, Vinnie Testaverde, and Dexter Coakley). My first reaction was that Pete Brown is a good friend, but I don’t know if he’s that good a friend.
But then I found myself actually rooting for Notre Dame to beat Michigan over the weekend. Simply because the Sheriff of Willingham is the head coach. If I can root for the Fighting Irish, then I can root for almost anyone.
