28 Modernities Older Than Brandon Weeden

New, 13 comments

Brandon Weeden is starting to get some good bronze statuette press.  Heisman talk is in the air in Stillwater for the first time since Barry Sanders ran his way into the hearts of the Downtown Athletic Club, and it is much deserved.  But, Weeden is starting to show some cracks with the questions from the media about his age.  The Tulsa World reported yesterday that when asked about the matter, Weeden replied: "Who gives a (bleep)?".  Now, Weeden is right. Nobody should care about Weeden's age in relation to the Heisman.  What OSU fans REALLY are asking is: "what expletive did the normally affable Weeden utter?"  Was it the F-word? Or the D-word?  Maybe he just totally went for it and said the V-word. 

But, who gives a Vagina?  Not OSU fans, and neither should Heisman voters.  The kid is an amazing leader and athlete, and he has only started 23 games.  Anyway, age is in the eye of the beholder:  Here are 28 modernities older than Weeden:
