World Class in Our Midst

I just learned about yet another world class accomplishment for a citizen of this region.

Congratulations to Marques Colston, who (after the 2006 and 2007 seasons) has the NFL record for most receptions in one's first two years in the league.

In other words, after two years, Colston is better than Jerry Rice or Michael Irvin or Lynn Swann or Fred Biletnikoff.

Berto refers to Mr. Colston as "the Big Smooth."  I wish that name would catch on.  Just watch the guy; he makes it look so easy.

Don't jinx the man -- I want him to have Jerry Rice's longevity as well!
