During a very eventful NFL Sunday we learned a lot about the 2012 season, including getting a better idea of which teams have a shot at making the playoffs, and which teams will likely be watching from home.
However, the most interesting thing that we learned this weekend was that Phil Robertson of the show “Duck Dynasty” not only played quarterback at Louisiana Tech but started ahead of NFL legend Terry Bradshaw.
Robertson decided to give up football and start his “Duck Commander” line of hunting calls, which made him a duck hunting legend and netted him over $5 million.
His starting job went at Louisiana Tech went to Terry Bradshaw, and “The Blonde Bomber” went on to lead the Pittsburgh Steelers to four Super Bowl Championships and the NFL Hall of Fame.
As Robertson put it in an interview “Terry chased the bucks and I chased the ducks.”
We’d say that things worked out pretty well for both of these old Louisiana Tech Bulldogs.
UPDATE: Two old friends and former teammates Terry Bradshaw and Phil Robertson ran into each other at the airport, it was the first time they had seen one another since Robertson left Louisiana Tech in the late 1960’s, reunited and it feel so good:
