    Don't know anything about pro-football

    With all the talk around town about this Super Bowl thing, I have to admit that I don't know anything about pro-football. Recently I went mountaineering with a player from the NFL, but was clueless to that fact until we were nearly to the summit of the mountain (he was part of our climbing party of five-we had mutual friends).

    After finding out that we were climbing with an NFL player, I was afraid to admit that I’ve never watched a football game before. Very nice fellow though.

    Fairly well known? Sounds like he never actually played in a game?

    Oh well...

    Yea, the title of this post should be "I went mountaineering with a guy and didn't know he was, and neither does anyone else."...

    Scout.com was where I pulled up the info.

    Almost nothing on Robert (Bob) Womack. I can only find a short reference to him playing on special teams in the NFL and it appears he was from Bozeman MT. Not even a mention of what teams he played for. So I assume maybe someone you know or once knew?

    FWIW: Less than 2% of all college football players (D1, D2 & D3) will ever sign a professional contract to play at any level in any league. I don't have the exact number, but of that 2% less than half will ever actually play in an NFL game.

    Yeah, high school coach/teacher and wild feller. I worked a summer for him on his ranch. He was crazy. Used to work, no shirt, running shoes, and pair of goodwill polyester pants, running, cutting down brush with a chainsaw and screaming "two midgets and a chainsaw" at the top of his lungs. I see his kid is in hollywood. Unique guy, and, quite the influence on a young, impressionable mind.

    Also played for Steve Okoniewski. Besides some guys who played pro football in Europe, that's pretty much the sum total of my contact with anyone who played pro sports.

    I think you're missing the entire point, my friend.

    I seriously know nothing about pro-football, which is the title of this thread. The point was I didn't want to embarrass myself by admitting to an NFL player that I've never watched or listened to a game. By "fairly well know", I meant Google pulls up a bunch of results. He was a very nice guy, but it's hard to join a conversation on something you know nothing about, so I didn't know what to say (and didn't want to embarrass myself) when it came up.

    Besides this one, the only football players I can even name are Joe Namuth [spelling?] (because he was on a Brady Bunch episode I watched at my cousin's house when I was a kid) and John Elway (because of Gerry Roach's mountaineering book and the car dealership).

    Once a few years ago I was with a contractor who started a conversation about football with me because there was a big game going on. He was from Nebraska and asked me if I was rooting for Nebraska. Not knowing what to say I asked him "Why; are they playing the Broncos"? I just assumed he was asking me (someone living in Colorado) about rooting for Nebraska because they must be playing for the Broncos or something. I didn't know he was talking about some college team. I still get harassed about it at work.

    Nah, I think I get it...I barely knew who was in the stupor bowl...if it wasn't for the commercials, the fabulous rendition of the Star Mangled Banner, and, the sweet, sweet half time show (ha ha), I'd probably find a nice documentary on flowers or something.

    You know what the "N" on Nebraska's helmet stands for?

    "Knowledge".

    Sounds funnier when you say it out loud. Heavy sigh...

    I think I'll go back to worshipping my idol: Jimmer.

    X2. I hope you saw the jimmer thread in the sports section. I posted a Jimmer worship face book article and thread. If you haven't seen it you will appreciate it if not laugh at it like I did.
