New Bog Fave: Shawn Kuykendall

My only previous experience with professional soccer player Shawn Kuykendall came last week, when, wearing a dark suit, white sneakers and a knit hat, he attempted to tie me up with a cord as part of the fake-Water Wars kidnapping that my boss nixed as thoroughly unbecoming of a professional journalist. Also Shawn yelled at me a lot. He was really, really into his role. Anyhow, I can say from personal experience that he's not the world's best cord wrapper, since I managed to make phone calls and use my computer after I had been "tied up."

But forget all that. I can say for absolute certainty that he has made one of the greatest professional athlete YouTube videos of all time. Pictured below are former Madison High and American U. star Shawn Kuykendall and his little sister Samantha doing....something. Not sure how best to describe it. But I really wish DCU officials would have had the foresight to keep this guy in our market permanently, rather than let him escape to New York. We miss him, badly.
