They’re great statements, but nowhere will you see the word “fun.”  Perhaps it is a word we ought to add.  Late on Saturday afternoon, after a rather comprehensive victory by our Bulldogs, Deion Pierre proposed marriage to his girlfriend, Jasmine Henderson, at Seibert Stadium.  The 2:09 video is pure fun.  Watch all the way to the end to hear Deion’s teammates chanting “She said yes!”

The world is better because of Deion Pierre, Jasmine Henderson, and a host of guys who are destined for successful careers, but probably not as backup singers.
