This post won't delve into any religious matters, per the MGoBoard rules, so don't worry.
This morning my "town," I guess you could call it, of Cutlerville had a combined Church service in a park, and Kirk Cousins was a guest speaker. I was struck by how mature and composed he was, especially speaking in front of a fairly large crowd. He talked for a few minutes about his experience against Notre Dame last year and what it felt like to let his whole team down by throwing an ill-advised pass that turned into an interception, and provided I thought his perspective on that event and sports in general was fantastic.
Anyway, I was very impressed, and I can honestly say that I hope he has a great next couple of years, and that he's not the reason MSU gets smoked by us this year. May none of his sacks at the hands of Death Roh cause his permanent physical damage.
I'm also curious about whether anyone else has any players on other teams that they respect for various reasons, whether it's because you've met them or something else.
