The Story of Jake the Snake

Ran across this courtesy of The Browser, a pretty good site for interesting reading.  It is the story of Jake Plummer's disappearance from the NFL at nearly the top of his game, to live in the Idaho woods and promote the sport of handball.

I was never a big Jake the Snake fan in the NFL, but I do respect a guy who walks away on his own terms.

That's why I have so much regard for Dan Marino, walking away when he did instead of clinging to the idea of playing until he could barely walk (see Favre, Brett). But I always thought Plummer was kind of a punk, too.

I agree, it's disappointing. You shouldn't have to pay $3 for a Molson in northern Idaho.

Especially since you're so close to Creston, British Columbia - the home of Kokanee!
