By all accounts we should be recruiting this guy. He sawed of the legs of his parents bed when he was 8 months old. He created the Great Lakes so his ox, Babe, would have a watering hole. He also created the Grand Canyon when he and Babe were walking and he dragged his axe behind him. I am guessing he was an out of state recruit.

He might be the ultimate cog in the GWOG. Get on it, pitt boss!!

    I met him once in Maine.  Nice guy, didn’t say much.

    The guy does get around, I saw him years ago in Bemidji, Minnesota.

    If for some strange reason you've always wanted to step across the Mississippi then Bemidji's the place to go.

    Huh, I've been to Bemidji a few times. Used to travel to Minnesota for work and sometimes that was the second leg of the trip. Atlanta > Minneapolis. Minneapolis > Bemidji or International Falls. Rent a car and drive for two hours.

    Had an old director that went to Bemidji State who I converted into being a huge Georgia fan. I still see him at least once a year at a conference and we spend a good hour just catching up on football.

    Meaningless trivia: Paul Bunyon was voiced for Disney by Thurl Ravenscroft who also sang, "You're a mean one, Mr. Grinch" and was most famous for Tony the Tiger, "They're great!!"
