A video of Stanford running back and Heisman finalist Christian McCaffrey is making the rounds. In it a young McCaffrey manages to juke a bunch of kids his age and also a few giant, big footed mascots on the way to the end zone. Once there, he pulls a Sharpie out of his sock and signs the football — just the way dedicated egomaniac Terrell Owens used to do in the NFL. Comments generally forgive the youngster his showboating ways — he’s a kid after all. While others (Alabama fans, no doubt) note that the mascots and munchkins McCaffrey befuddles look a lot like “those Pac-12 defenses he plays against.” (Hear that, Heisman voters?)
The video confirms what Tiger Woods said recently, while making a public pitch for McCaffrey’s inclusion as a Heisman candidate. Woods, who hasn’t played much golf lately, has “watched a lot of football this year.” Tiger’s conclusion? That “@CMccaffrey5 is the most exciting player out there. He deserves a trip to NYC.” And that was before Woods knew that fellow Stanford guy McCaffrey had always been exciting, a young prodigy just like Woods himself. Looks like Tiger Woods was right about McCaffrey’s excitement level. And McCaffrey’s getting that trip to New York, too. He’s a Heisman finalist. Woods, right again.
