    Re: Mildred and Ernest

    You know, for the Ute fans that you actually are, you might have inadvertently swerved into something.

    Ziggy may not get the most sacks this year, but there is a good possibility that he can indeed be the rookie of the year.

    Thanks for supporting the Cougars, however most of us see through your tactics.

    "There are exactly 100 days until the NFL season begins, and for Ziggy Ansah, they will be the most important days of his life."

    Not a statement I expected to see in the DesNews about an LDS convert.

    Ziggy is a great story. Hope he has all kinds of success in football and in life. Ghana is a tough place to grow up. Ziggy was lucky to get into high school as Ghana only has room for a fourth of it's students to attend high school.

    Similar barriers exist in other African nations. My son's elementary school will be having an "African Drum night" to raise money for high schools in Kenya, where a similarly small fraction of students are able to attend high school.

    There is a great work to be done to enable education throughout Africa. I hope Ziggy uses some of his new income to help out, just as my son's elementary school is helping out. I also think it is a huge opportunity for the LDS church. Sending missionaries to Western Europe is expensive, results in few converts (often African immigrants), little humanitarian and geneological work can be done. Meanwhile, sending missionaries to Africa is cheap, results in many converts, and a great deal of humanitarian and geneological work can be done.

    I don't feel badly for Ziggy at all. He will make millions.

    Out in full force? One guy saying "Go Utes!" is full force? So if The one utes fan whom commented before you needs to get a life do the two cougar fans before him also have to get a life?

    As for Ziggy, he's a great kid with a great story but personally I feel bad for him. The Lions are cursed.

    And the Utah girls am I are out in full force commenting from behind the computer screens about a guy who has accomplished something that they will NEVER, I repeat, NEVER accomplish in their lives. Time to get a life and find something to do other than comment on DNews boards from behind a computer screen.

    Ziggy should lead the league in sacks and be the rookie of the year.
