My nephew, Alex Carroll, attends Georgetown University in Washington DC. Georgetown recruited him to play football after three stellar years playing running back for Highland Park.

But, OMG, he’s lost his mind. Check out his YouTube.com video called "Georgetown Backflips." I can’t describe it. You simply have to see it for yourself. But please, I beg you, do NOT tell my children. They might decide to emulate their much-admired cousin, and I’ve got enough to handle without some paralysis on the side.
