Apropos of So Little: Video of Willie Wilson Playing HS Football

Sometimes one finds himself drinking at a stranger’s apartment in Paris, France, and then talking to a different stranger who happened to play football at Summit (New Jersey) High School with former Royals outfielder Willie Wilson in 1973 or whatever and then watching grainy footage, while drinking even more, of giant and fast Willie Wilson scoring all different kinds of touchdowns against other, smaller high-school-aged New Jerseyans in 1973.

It’s just something that happens, is what the author is attempting to say and what the reader needs to believe.

In and around Summit High School, Thanksgiving is known as Willie Wilson Day, or the day Willie Wilson scored 17 touchdowns.

That was awesome. Please thank your drunk strangers for sharing.
