I love it when this happens!April 25, 2009 at 5:50 pm | Posted in Football | 11 Comments
I am so happy right now. My favorite NFL team, the Buffalo Bills, just used their #1 pick to draft the best player from my college alma mater, Penn State, Aaron Maybin! Maybin was a red-shirt sophomore for PSU last year, and emerged as one of the most dominating players in college football after being given a chance to start for the first time. Maybin’s season was, in my opinion, the top season by a Penn State defensive end since my freshman year of 1997. That includes Courtney Brown, the #1 overall pick in the 2000 draft, Michael Haynes, and Tamba Hali, who were also first round picks.
This comes two years after the Bills drafted Paul Posluszny, one of the all-time greatest Penn State linebackers. Coupled with the addition of T.O., I am starting to get very excited about the upcoming football season! Hey, with the Rays getting comfortable in last place in the A.L. East, I need something to look forward to…
You can bet that I’ll be scouring eBay for Aaron Maybin autographs to add to my collection soon.
I’m sorry for the lack of posts recently. I’ll explain my absence and the future of this blog soon.
