Blondes might have more fun, but brunettes get all the glory. At least they do now in Ann Arbor.
In Tuesday night's Sugar Bowl, Michigan kicker Brendan Gibbons delivered the winning kick in overtime to defeat Virginia Tech, 23-20. His clutch 37-yard field goal followed a 37-yard miss by the Hokies -- who are known for great special teams play. Gibbons' boot was a huge moment for Michigan fans, who have watched Wolverine kickers fail in big pressure situations for years.
So what made the difference in this critical moment? Well, let Gibbons explain:
"Every time we were struggling in kicking," Gibbons told the media, "coach always tells me to think about girls on a beach or brunette girls. So that's what we did."
Coach Brady Hoke clearly did a great job helping his kicker win one for the team and helping oft-overlooked women get some love. So ladies, next time you reach for the bleach (and gentlemen, the next time you find yourself pursuing a golden-haired beauty) you might want to stop and ask yourself a question:
"What can brown do for you?"
