Elliott Mealer is better than me…

Elliott Mealer is better than me…

October 22, 2009

…and not just at football.

This is an “E:60” report from ESPN. It outlines the sad story of the deaths of Elliott Mealer’s father and girlfriend two years ago.

If I were Mealer, I would have stood up and walked away from Lisa Salters when she asked me what I whispered to my girlfriend as I held her dying body in my arms. Some things should be left between a person and his maker.

I’m guessing Elliott Mealer doesn’t want to be remembered for this car accident. Hopefully Michigan fans will someday know Mealer for his success on the field in Michigan Stadium. On a lot of teams, the fans’ favorite player is the backup quarterback. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen the favorite be a backup guard, but there’s a first time for everything.
