The Best Award Ever

I enjoy people who are clever. Not people who are clever in the scheming kind of way, but people who think just differently enough to make something fun.

So when I heard that University of Minnesota punter Peter Mortell created another college football award to recognize the best holder in the game and then gave the award to himself, I couldn't help but smile.

College football has a lot of awards. Like a lot lot. But one skill they don't recognize is the holder. You know, the guy who catches the ball and puts in on the ground for the kicker. Mortell saw that position wasn't properly recognized and he sought to fix that.

So let's all take a moment to recognize Peter Mortell, the 2015 holder of the year and the creator of the holder of the year award.

On to today's links:

Death Penalty Dysfunction

Among other facts I learned in this article, roughly 10 percent of people on death row are veterans.

 The "Jihad truck" one year later

A year after it became a punchline, how has the plumber who had his former work truck end up in Syria handling what happened?

Global Supermarkets selling shrimp peeled by slaves

Let these stores know that this isn't acceptable.
