Interesting story in the vein of the Good White Guy Basketball Player theme: "Not Just a Shooter"...
Troy Apke is turning heads at the combine, with a 4.35 40-yard Dash (along with a 41 inch vertical).
Deion Sanders was impressed, but couldn't tell you exactly WHY he was so impressed:
“Oh man, he can run,” Sanders said, stopping the conversation he was having with NFL Network analysts Mike Mayock and Rich Eisen. “Why are you surprised Deion?” Mayock joked. “You know why I’m surprised. I can’t say it on TV. But he can run run,” Sanders said. Yes, that’s (presumably) a joke about Apke being white and running fast. “You don’t see that much. Let’s call it what it is,” Sanders said.
Along with some of the comments made yesterday about the guy from UCF with one hand, the commentary by some of these talking heads makes me shake my head.
