Let it not be said that football does not bring people together . . . or at least the hatred of certain teams. When South Carolina Officer Michael Blackmore saw a man about to jump off a bridge, he struggled to find a common connection or interest. He found it in their mutual hatred for the Dallas Cowboys. With the crushing defeat of my Chicago Bears last night, I also have found a new reason to live.
When the man told Blackmore that he did not want to live anymore, Blackmore brought up football and soon found a mutual hatred for the Cowboys.
That hatred for the Cowboys saved a man’s life and gave him a reason to live. It is a beautiful thing.
