my mustangs represent!
for all of you who don't know, i am an avid mustang football fan. yes, even when we went 0-12 in 2003 and 3-8 in 2004.
i was at all the games as a mustang roper, until my senior year when the ncaa banned such groups, citing possibilities of "special treatment" for sought-after recruits. no, we did not have sex with the highschoolers. we wore unflattering red or white collared polos that were usually too big. it was totally innocent, i assure you.
last season we were 5-6, with two or three games (including the one against balor, matt) that we definitely should've won.
all of this is really only mildly related to what i'm writing this blog to tell you.
so on with it, you say.
four players on smu's 2005 squad are involved in nfl rookie mini camps this weekend. two, linebacker dd lee and kicker chris mcmurtray (yes, he's the white one), are at valley ranch as we speak. i will be there tomorrow morning and hope to drop a friendly hello to those two. also, linebacker/d-back alvin nnabuife signed a free agent contract with the oakland raiders, which basically guarantees him a trip to their training camp this summer. finally, d-back rolando humphrey was invited along with 90 (!) other rookies to try out for the (booooo...) washington redskins.
also, go here to see lee and mcmurtray's names on the dallas cowboys website.
so, there you have it. good times.
wishing them the best of luck.
(sorry, i have no idea what the hell is up with the picture placement on this thing. but don't they look so nice in their ties? aww...)
