Watch & Learn, Boys!

I came across the story of Sam Gordon recently, and just had to share. This 9-year old GIRL has already compiled an impressive highlight reel, while playing in a nearly all-boys tackle football league.

My favorite quote from this story?

“Some kids, right before the contact, they stop,” her father said she told him. “I don’t. I just hit ‘em.”

My kinda girl.

Basically, Sam is living the dream. Seriously. I’ve had dreams like this. Of course my dreams have included back-to-back pick 6’s and crying men, but still… pretty close.


Anyway, I think Samantha is incredible and I love that she’s not only holding her own with the boys, she’s showing them up! Kudos to Mom & Dad for supporting their little girl in her not-so-girly sport. You rock, Sam! 🙂

  1. What do you think it will take to sign Joseph, about 9 Mil per year? And Benson about 5 Mil per? Not sure what their 2010 salaries were, but that’s praobbly a 12 Mil increase.We assume they cut Chad and save 6 Mil, and Carson is traded or retired saving 11.5 Mil in 2011. If they don’t trade Carson, even if he is considered retired, they will approach it like he’s going to play and get paid, so the Budget will plan for 11.5 Mil being spent on Carson. This may hurt them even more because they will have to sign Dalton (about 2 Mil) plus bring in another FA QB. Figure they will spend anywhere from $500,000 to 2 Mil for another QB, so total budget allocated for Bengals QBs will be between 14 16 Mil in 2011. They also have to pay big money to A.J. Green, which will more than eat up the money freed from letting TO walk and releasing Chad.
