Want an entertaining, hilarious, but still semi-logical listen? Hit up Eddie Maisonet aka “Ed The Sports Fan” on Twitter, G-Chat, Facebook or phone and have him explain in detail the Jacksonville Jaguars’ rebuilding process and how it involves Louisville’s Teddy Bridgewater.
For no real explanation other than simply wanting football to dictate the flow of our weekends once more, this Bridgewater highlight reel shall live in this exact spot until Al Gore decides the Internet has finally ran its course. With the season still weeks away, the easy picks for Heisman and the #1 pick in next year’s draft center around the Cardinals signal caller and South Carolina’s machine/freak-of-nature/trained assassin, Jadaveon Clowney. Their unique bond through near indescribable talent is also one of the more intriguing story lines of the year pending both live up to their increasingly unreal expectations.
Anywho, let the experts tell it and Bridgewater has all the tools to become a future All-Pro quarterback. And let Ed tell it, Bridgewater is why the Jags will soon shed their image of football’s version of the Charlotte Bobcats. After this season, of course, where one of the most beautiful tank jobs in sports history takes place (because tanking actually works in the NFL, ya know?).
Simply put, everybody, the message is clear. #PrayForEd that #TankForTeddy actually works.
Side note: Between the men’s basketball team winning the national title and the hype surrounding Bridgewater, being a student at Louisville must be like heaven on Earth. From Thirsty Thursdays to Monday morning, I’d imagine campus has to be one huge shitshow consisting of endless beer, liquor, cold pizza, tailgating, random hookups and weed. Further proof there’s nothing on Earth quite like undergrad.
