One of my favorite nights while Patrick was in college was against West Virginia. I just happened to be sitting behind Patrick's family. West Virginia was kicking off to the always dangerous PP7. He ran that punt back and in the end zone struck the Heisman Pose! It was epic! The student section was going bonkers. But my favorite part of the whole episode was his family was talking the whole time and didn't see the punt return or the Heisman Pose. Meanwhile back at the ranch; I was going ape shit! I kept telling them he was going to be front page of the paper the next day.
I was also in Tuscaloosa the year Patrick made the infamous Interception that wasn't. Alabama home cooking I tell you. Stick around long enough and I will be glad to tell you why I think the SEC offices should be moved out of Birmingham. Anyway, it was obviously an interception he got both feet in. He even made a huge whole in the field where his feet landed. I could see the pulled up grass from where I was sitting.
So kids there you have it! Venus Trapped is having a Fan Friday link up over on her blog today and Patrick is my submission for favorite player.
