I remember I really wanted to vote for Hubert Humphrey for president because 1) the alliteration of his name, and 2) he was running against George Wallace and then Richard Nixon.(Even then, Alabama had questionable political candidates.)
The problem was I was 8 in 1968.
Thus, I understand the privilege and responsibility of being a voter.
But other than running the high school football poll for a few years with The Advertiser a long, long time ago, I don’t get invited to vote on football polls or player-of-the-year ballots very often. But a few years ago, the folks with the Biletnikoff Award started sending me a ballot. I was honored because 1) I actually got to see Biletnikoff play in person and 2) after several Google attempts, I learned how to spell his name.
Anyway, to make a short story long, I voted for Michael Gallup of Colorado State. (I would have voted for John Ursua, but he wasn’t on the final list because his season ended prematurely.)
