Joe on Herschel

Joe Posnanski has an excellent blog post about Herschel Walker and his amazing college career. It reminds me that one of the most ironic things about the Minnesota/Philly sports fan dichotomy is that while Walker may be the most hated athlete in Minnesota history (along with Christian Laettner and J.R. Rider), he's absolutely beloved in Philly. That's got to be the only case of any athlete I can think of, where they're more popular in Philadelphia than in another city. Well, I suppose it's possible that Rangers fans hate Eric Lindros more than Flyers fans.
