We Could Have Had Something Special

Upon hearing that NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue had announced his plans to retire in July, to be honest, I wept like a baby. When I finally pulled myself together, I wondered "who can possibly follow in his footsteps"? The man leaves larger shoes to fill than Robert Wadlow. The only person I could think of who would possibly be up to the challenge is Yoda. But you will never believe whose name I heard mentioned instead - Condoleezza Rice. No joke.

The more I thought about it, the more it made sense. After all her accomplishments, running a pro sports league would be the next logical step. She succeeded Colin Powell as secretary of state. Why wouldn't she further herself by taking the helm of the "S.S. Gobs-of-money"? Forget about the White House, nevermind aboout accomplishing things on a global scale, or making the world a safer place. What would world peace be without American football to enjoy?

Then I saw this. Hey, you snooze, you lose, Condy. Anyone know how to get to Dagobah?

That was interesting listening to her bio how she's a huge football fan, and would love to run the league. Amazing woman...

Now how can I convince her to be Mrs. Evans...

Jason, my guess is she's just waiting for you to ask. :)

Could be the answer....

I think she has a think for NFL players though... her biography mentioned she used to date one (I think)...

Mrs. WakeandaHalf said...

Well you may be in luck, maybe she's given up on NFL players. She's probably just waiting for the right guy to call. ;)

Believe it or not, Ms Rice is rumored to frequent this blog. Where do you think I heard she wanted to be Commish?
