Glasses During a Football Play?

We’re understandably concerned about a football player wearing glasses during a play.

Until we find it’s a kicker. So it’s not even a real football player.

Then we see it’s Andrew Flesher, Harvard’s kicker.

It doesn’t count.  Mostly because the likelihood of a kicker making physical conduct in an Ivy League football game is near-zero. And the fact that wearing glasses doesn’t matter in the Ivy League. Face it, after a Linear Algebra final (by the way, don’t take that class unless you absolutely must — it’s as big a challenge as senior-level statistics), kicking in a college football game is nothing important.

Something that would count is a Hall-of-Famer wearing glasses. Here we see Willie Roaf, then of the New Orleans Saints:

Fortunately, he didn’t wear the glasses during play.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
