Today is Presidents Day, generally viewed as a celebration of the lives
of George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Of late, it has become
a day to recognize the contributions of all American presidents.
I am listening to an interesting radio program right now, the host Hugh Hewitt is discussing all 43 presidents with presidential historian and biographer Richard Norton Smith. Fascinating stuff.
Anyway, there are some college football connections with American presidents. Gerald Ford played football at Michigan, one of the alltime great programs in this sport. And I believe current president George W. Bush was one of those male cheerleader/rally types while enrolled at Yale.
Be sure and think back on the contributions of these men (and maybe women in the future) today.
