Fact of the Day: Shakespearean Football

The first player ever drafted to the Pittsburgh Steelers was named William Shakespeare. He previously played for Notre Dame in college, but ended up leaving the NFL shortly after joining the Steelers for a different career.

He probably tried his hand at writing.

I'm picturing William Shakespeare running around on a football field with that long hair and silly outfit he's always pictured in!

Feral Turtle said...

Haha I wonder if he would stop the game to tell stories?

Pat Hatt said...

It would have been especially hilarious if he was some big, illiterate lunkhead who didn't understand the reference.

Now that's a fun tidbit, Adam! I'm still shivering from seeing your image of the quadratic equation, which for one brief time I could derive. It was the highlight of my life grappling with math. Now I have no clue how I did it or what I derived it from. I enjoy it when your share stories from your life, but that pit bull one may haunt me. I remember the missing Ws on the White House typewriters; many Republicans did not find it funny ~ no sense of humor and fun at all! I hope you took Daisy for a ride on that ferris wheel! It's my favorite carny ride. Have a good one!

No one would ever take him seriously as a writer. Like being an artist named Picasso---the wrong one!
