It occurred to me that there was an opening kickoff returned for a touchdown in both the Super Bowl and the college football national championship game this year. Last night, the Bears’ Devin Hester did the honors.
Last month, as you may recall, Ted Ginn Jr. similarly started the game off in style for Ohio State. Unfortunately for both talented return men, their teams proceeded to lose badly in games that would’ve been even more one-sided if not for their initial moments of brilliance. At least their fans were delirious with joy for that moment.
