Kid Breaks Down About Marcus Mariota Leaving Oregon (Video)
Sometimes I think that little kids are bigger sports fans than we give them credit for. We’ve seen kids break down before over things like the Jimmy Graham trade from the Saints, and now it looks like some are equally invested in the college game. This little kid has a hard time coming to terms with the fact that Marcus Mariota won’t be at Oregon next season.
I’m sure he’s not the only Duck fan that will be missing Mariota, but it sounds like they’ll have a strong squad on the field even without him—though, that’s probably cold comfort for this kid.
Here’s the video:
If adults could openly weep about such things, maybe they wouldn’t feel the need to bottle it all up with alcohol and start fights at stadiums. Even though that part of sports is pretty fun, too.
Maybe this kid can play with a giant Subway version of Mariota. Sure, it’s a little slimy, but it’s better than nothing. Well, it’s better as long as you get to it in the first couple days. Then it’s probably much, much worse than nothing. You know, once the flies come and the turkey starts to turn.
