Gotta Love College Football

You don't see this with baseball fans, or basketball fans.

I'm trying to finish RammerJammerYellowHammer this weekend, and came across this gem---

"There's one more stop before kickoff---the Bear Bryant namesake reunion at the Bryant Museum. The namesake reunion is exactly what it sounds like---a gathering of people named after Paul William "Bear" Bryant. The museum keeps a registry of such people---they fill out a form headed "I was named for Coach Bryant"and are invited once a year to a pregame barbecue at the museum.
The list is, of course, voluntary and only modestly publicized, so it can't account for everyone named after the Bear---or those who'd been named Paul, Bryant, or Bear for reasons that remain a mystery even to me. But these limitations notwithstanding, the current tally of registered Bear Bryant namesakes stands just shy of six hundred.

600! Crazy! You could say "smarter than the average Bear" to one of those people and it'd be funny. LOL.
