Did I get any gratification sitting on my arse for several hours today? When your team loses you feel like you just wasted a chunk of your afternoon. That may be why I was so inspired by this twitter post from Rachel Maddow (or her staff, you never know) regarding a STUDENT athlete at Florida State.
To summarize with the story highlights from the article:
Myron Rolle, who has a 3.75 GPA in pre-med, was named a Rhodes Scholar finalist
Rolle has to be in Birmingham on Nov. 22; FSU plays at Maryland on the same day
If the game is at night, FSU will petition the NCAA to fly him in for second half
