I saw the guy interviewed on the local news.  He seemed like he'd be a cool guy to have a beer with.

I'd probably be a criminal, too, if my last name suggested oral sex with equines.

Its not so much that the guy was an old man, its the fact that he gave a shiat. How many people younger and stronger would have just stepped aside. Not my job etc...

Good job old dude!

Someone should treat him to a nice steak.

Breaks hip, of the suspect :)

Can't wait until the Raiders draft him in the second round.

"Tripping" a runner (which by definition is not tripping) is a legal means of using "legs ... by a defensive player ... to bring him [the runner] to the ground." That is in the definition of a Tackle (see 2-41).

However, Roger Goodell would still like a word with him.

A certain large,West coast PD could learn a trick or two from him.

I'm not getting stabbed or beat up over some petty two bit crime. I'm letting the pros who are on the scene handle it.

If you're doing bestiality porn Morgan Bluehorse is better.

It's late and I read that as tickles.. I was more impressed at that point.

He stopped the bad guy without a gun?  Inconceivable!

Sounds Native American.  There has to be a Wounded Knee joke there somewhere.

This is Fark... shouldn't the outcry be "That man has no right tackling the burglar who was trying to leave his property!  He should have just let the police handle it!"  Maybe the burglar can sue the old man for injuries.

It's more impressive than talking to a chair.

His name is Miracle. He was a Middle school English teacher. Hence he was called Miracle whip. true story.

Though I question his tackling technique, this is a very cool story. I tackled a bad guy once and held him for the police, but I was only 29. And the bad guy was a drunk, not a speed freak.

This is my friend's grandpa so I'm getting a kick...
