If you couldn’t muster up any interest in watching football by this point, may we offer into evidence exhibit #1 in our argument for why people who aren’t might want to tune in. This picture of Notre Dame’s Cam McDaniel, whose name even sounds handsome, is an actual thing that happened? In a game? His helmet got pulled off and not only did he keep running with the ball, he managed to throw a Blue Steel at us? Expertly done, sir. As others have pointed out, add him to the list with ridiculously photogenic jiu jitsu guy and ridiculously photogenic marathon runner.
