The attendance at today's first Sports luncheon was pretty good considering the present circumstances.
Men's Soccer Coach Fran O'Leary, one of the speakers at today's luncheon, is always a hoot!!!
Warning, Rant ahead:
Football has decided not to participate in the Luncheons.
I am a Luncheon Committee member, a football fan and a big supporter of Walt Bell and his program and what he's trying to accomplish here
but I think this is the wrong decision!!
Football's presence at the Luncheons, during their season, has been a proud and appreciated tradition.
Just sayin'.......

This is literally, "If you can't stand the heat, stay out of the kitchen". Pretty timid behavior for a football coach.

1ST- Kirk is listed at 5'7" and 230. I am 5'6" and about 235 and after looking up clips and images, he looks smaller in some ways then I am. I have a larger stomach and middle, but he's got larger thighs. So there is no way he is any where near 275. You need to stop fat shaming people.
