No he didn't & he knows it. Sorry the kid has cancer but don't for insult his intelligence by telling him he actually scored.

This.  He went out there with his favorite team, he got to run on the field with his favorite players, and it was probably a blast... but he knows for sure he didn't score.

As long as they weren't playing against... oh, you guys know what school I'm about to reference

I can't believe the officials missed the 11.5-men in the huddle penalty.  Throw the flag!

That probably violated a few NCAA recruiting rules there. Didn't think they could practice with the team that young, no matter how early they've committed to the school. Typical Big Twenleven disdain for the rules.

Man.  Giving up a run like that is really going to hurt the Blackshirts morale.  I guess all they can do is forget about it and try harder next practice.

I always wonder how many kids die of cancer w/o ever getting a wish fulfilled like this, and if anyone cares

Terrible defense.  Pelini is going to tear them all new assholes.

Bet he gets a check from Auburn in a few days to get him to change his commitment.

That was touching and I enjoying it I really did.  But while he was running part of me was wondering how funny it would be if one the Defensive guys just ran up and laid him out.
 
2013-04-06 11:14:14 PM
I've seen Michigan State do something like this before as well, years ago. The defenders had more fun with it, letting the kid run into them and diving like they were hit by a car. Or pretending to try and tackle the kid and whiff horribly.

Gotta remember, a lot of these kids have little brothers or sisters at home, so they take care of these make a wish/ill kids like family when they can.

Even about this you're going to be jaded and pedantic?  Christ, that's pathetic.

LOL. I thought the same thing. Waterboy style...kid turns around and gets kicked in the chest and flies through the field goal posts.

Was going to come in here and ask anyone else if they felt this way.  However, when you're that young, it's possible he though he was running as fast as a cheetah (I remember believing I "out ran a bee" when I was near his age).  So maybe he does believe he scored, but when (or if :( ) he grows up to be old enough to watch the video and realize whats going on... I can't believe he wouldn't be say to himself "screw you guys."

I get the gut feeling that 6 year old kid can probably beat you in a foot race.

Not the point.  Imagine if you did this to a 15 year old, you think he would be happy?  As someone else said, you're insulting the kids intelligence trying to pretend he outran your entire team for a touchdown (official or not).

He's seven. I'm not sure it's possible to insult his intelligence. And I don't  mean that in a mean way, I just think you're looking at it through your adult eyes. He's a child.

SkittlesAreYum: He's seven


This.

I basically think that if you saw this and your first thought was anything other than "That's awesome.  Good for him.", then you're a broken human being.

/however, "wouldn't it be funny if somebody just leveled him?" is an acceptable second thought

The point, you missed it, by a wide margin.

Wait, Jack Hoffman finally got to score a touchdown?  This is the best story of the year so far.  I hope he gets to score another one next year. GO BIG RED!

For those that want to be jaded maybe you should know more on his story.  Jack has brain cancer.  He has been able to do quite a few activities with the team, especially Rex Burkhead.  For him I'm sure he was playing football with his friends.  I am so glad to see him on the field and able to run, the last update I had heard on him was his cancer was growing again and inoperable.

They must have been playing agains the University of Minnesota.

TD counted towards the final score, and he was listed as the leading rusher on the day

2013-04-07 02:45:41 AM
It was a nice day for a kid who doesn't get to enjoy too many of those. Why can't people just appreciate it for what it is?

Impressive work from both of you. With a single post, you've managed to convince everyone reading this thread that you're terrible human beings.

And for the record, yes the score was actually counted. Its an exhibition game of the team playing itself, they can do anything they damn well please.

I was thinking one of the defensive guys laying out one of the blockers and snickered to myself.  Your version, I am only slightly ashamed to admit, made me chuckle a bit as well.

For those of you going on about he knows it, and it's insulting or all the other kids who have serious issues don't get to do this, I hope you're trolling.  If so, good job, if not, try being happy for someone else, it doesn't hurt I promise...

5 miles an hour is barely faster than a brisk walk.  Way to go, Usain.

Glad I'm not the only one who though of this.  Actually it would be funny if he got laid out and the defensive player stood over him and talked trash.

That was just piss-poor tackling.
