Disguised this time as a football, opportunity presented itself again last week. This time to a kid who resembles a Mark Twain character riding a raft on Big Muddy, a scene to remind us anew why ... America, I (we) love this place!
A gangly red-haired kid born in Pittsburgh, grew up in Murray, Kentucky with smarts, perseverance and pluck enough to be ready, recognize and seize the moment. Tim Masthay.
This week, home boy hero to bright lights, Masthay is among the Cheese Head darlings parading through title town USA, Green Bay, Wisconsin.
