The season gets busy. You miss things just out of the inability to keep up with the sheer volume of things happening at once. For instance, it’s May 2017, and we’re just now realizing that the second most-prolific passer in terms of total yardage was...Ryan Higgins? Of Louisiana Tech, who plays for Skip Holtz? Who threw for 4,617 yards with 41 TDs and 8 INTs, proving that in any year, there is always a Conference-USA quarterback you could not pick out of a lineup throwing for NCAA 2014 numbers?
You miss those things, is the point. You also sometimes miss the little moments of beauty, of fans touching their communities, and those communities touching the game, and the game being made just a bit warmer, more human, and all the more special through that cycle of appreciation, togetherness, and gratitude.
What do we mean by that? We’re not sure. Like, we have no clue whatsoever, man. It sounds good, though. Anyway, here’s something we missed in 2016 that isn’t one of those things, but is magical nonetheless.
Oh you bet there was a sale on Buckeye Tears after Penn State beat the Buckeyes 24-21, though how you can sell anything with that name and not be raided by the FDA immediately is beyond us. CAN VAPING GET YOU GAINS? LET’S FIND OUT. Also there’s a Joe Paterno-themed one in there, answering the question you may have never asked but now know the answer to: “Can vape juice be problematic?” (Yes, dear god yes it can.)
