Bless her heart, is she the most perfect thing you ever saw or what. No wonder that doofus is willing to get his brains beat out on the gridiron. I bet you anything he's underweight by 25 pounds compared to his teammates.

What counts for them both is that he's her football hero.

Amen, Brent. The more I look at this picture the more I'm captivated by it. Look at his right hand; is he clenching his fist while making a muscle in his arm? And look at his face; at first I thought he was just a doofus-looking galoot, but now I think maybe he looks like that because he's deeply inhaling the scent from her hair, and also trying to look at her because how often does he get to be this close to her?

Lastly, what's the story on the sweater? Is it hers, and he's modeling it so she can repair the letter more easily? The waist looks short enough to be hers, but the arm length looks too long.

I really wish the NFL would bring back this style of uniform.
