While I love to hate on MSU as much as the next guy, I wanted to share a story from this weekend. I had the pleasure to be on a team for a charity/celebrity bowling tournament in Indianapolis on Saturday that raised money for concussion research at St. Vincent's Hospital. While most of the "celebrities" were not super well known people it included: Gary Brackett (Colts), David Boudia (Olympic Medalist and NCAA Champion Diver from Purdue), Legedu Naanee (Chargers), Chris Carr (Ravens), former Spartan RB Jehuu Caulcrick (Bills), and a bunch of others.
Anyway, I'm currently a big brother with the Big Brothers Big Sisters program so I brought my little brother with me to the event. He loved the event and all the players were really great with the kid. Our team was paired up with the team that had Jehuu Caulcrick who many of you remember was from West Africa, father was a politician and was assassinated while he was a kid. His mom and sister escaped to Buffalo, NY. In college he shared the backfield at MSU with Javon Ringer setting the MSU record for most TD's in a single season. My little bro talked a lot of smack (he is 10 yrs old), but Jehuu was great with him and at the end of the night took the jersey he was wearing off his own back, signed it, and gave it to my little brother. It might sound like a simple thing, but its those moments that make a kids life. It is something my little brother will never forget. What a great guy, and I only wish the best for the man. Good to see great people like this out there. I just wanted to share this with people, because while its easy to point out negative things about rival schools, we must give credit where credit is due.
