Weird Recruiting Update


Yesterday Bill King tweeted that this is the time of the year that a lot of people are going to get “carpal tunnel”. I’m pretty sure that Bill is referring to this being recruiting season and there will be a lot of F5 and page refreshes from fans. I think it maybe old guys on Viagra, spanking it to 4-5 star recruits.

I get a chuckle out of this time of the year because the 21-55 age demographic football fan or “recruitnik” track 17-18 year old boys. As an example read screencap below as a Vols fan provides some detailed analysis of prospective running back physical appearance. This level of detail is completely unnecessary but is always very creepy and very funny. GLUTES.

About Capers Bar

I am retired Army officer. I used to fly helicopters and airplanes while I was in the Army. Nowadays, I do other things that are not so cool and sexy. I decided to write about my journey or whatever you want to call it towards running a half-marathon this fall. I have been running since 1983, I have run the Duke City full and half marathons. I don't run that fast anymore, I did win a 10K when I was 21, those days are mercifully past me. The fastest mile I have turned is a 5:05 during one of those Army physical fitness test 2 mile runs. The point I am making is that I am old, slow, and experienced runner. I named the blog after my running buddy, Bandit, an Australian Blue Heeler. He is my 3rd K-9 running buddy, the previous two dogs were black labs. I hope to write about some of my discussions that I have with Bandit in the future. I once owned, but since sold and a satirical and irreverent sports blog that was moderately successful. I was published in the left-wing national sports media by Sports Illustrated and ESPN. I am "stuck" in Alabama working for a military contractor. I am working so fricking hard to get back to Southeast New Mexico or West Texas. Fingers and toes crossed.
