    Cool Flacco Story



    Apparently his former High-School Calculus teacher now does sports writing.

    OK, where did Flacco fall, said, fearing the worst.

    “He was in the highest level,” Tanier said. “He was a really smart kid. There were 4 or 5 of his teammates in his class.” Also in his class was Flacco’s future wife.

    Tanier described Flacco as “quiet, dedicated, and very serious.” Still, he showed his quarterback qualities in class.

    “When we had a group project, he took on the leadership position,” Tanier said.
    Yet Tanier admits he isn’t completely objective when it comes to Flacco. He wants his former student to finally reach the Super Bowl.

    “I absolutely root for him,” Tanier said. “I’ve never hidden the fact that I’m an Eagles fan. If they’re out of it, then I’m a Ravens fan.. This is a kid I used to see fool around with his buddies before class. It’s like any teacher. You want your former students to do well.

    I bet Roethlisberger didn't take any calculus in high school.

    I wonder how far Flacco could throw a football in high school.

    Peter Pawn is a fucking imbecile, e.g.:
    There is a flash of purple uniform slightly behind the corner, and the safety is spotted a second late in moving into coverage.
    Hello, Petey? The Ravens were in visitors' whites, shithead!

    King was wrong about the purple, but he sure gave big time props to Flacco. That was refreshing.

    The "purple uniform" could be a reference to the jersey or the helmet, both of which have purple on them even when the team is in visitor's whites. Or it could be a little poetic license.

    Not sure why that was so exciting...

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.
