    Robert Griffin the Third is the starting quarterback for Washington Redskins but has had knee injuries due to his constant running of the football. He’s not a natural in the pocket passer.

    @annieb1012

    You can google RG3, but “bambi knees” just gets me deviantart.com, which was probably not the intent here.

    @Buzza Wuzza, @MiepR ** Thanks. Football facts are not my strong suit :-)

    The NCAA is a bizarre mix of unpaid labor risking life and limb generating bazillions within institutions that ostensibly answer to the higher calling of educating our future. Among the big institutions of America, it’s always struck me as one of the most amoral.

    (Before you talk about the great education the athletes get while their coaches pull down 7 and 8 figure salaries [while libraries crumble and tuitions skyrocket] please check the graduation rates of those athletes.)

    March Madness? Yeah, but it actually lasts all year long.

    I believe Bambi was unsteady on his feet.

    30 years ago my father said they should just drop the pretense of student athletes and call it what it is – minor league.

    Just to add some perspective here; f you haven’t seen it, watch the Marx Brothers 1932 movie “Horsefeathers.” Do we have a football team? Do we have a college? Well we can’t afford both, in the morning we start tearing down the college.

    The last thing a for-profit school would do is leave the NCAA and start having to actually PAY its players. Unless, of course, the for-profit schools found a way to form their own league that exploited the players even more profitably…

    Does that mean Pro-cheerleaders too?!

    Who could forget the adorable video of Bambi trying to get up and straighten his legs as a young Bambi?

    Of course, Bambi is only a cartoon character. Farmers around here don’t view deer as Bambi, only as giant rodents munching on their winter wheat…
