Dinner at Ralph's House

Ralph Friedgen brought up the subject of politics the other day. He said he recently had the players over his house for dinner and the conversation turned political. A lot of players on the team are interested in politics and tomorrow’s election.

“We solved all the world’s problems that night,” Friedgen joked about the dinner. “It was kind of interesting. We have a Canadian, Michael Carter, and I think he was trying to get us to go to socialism. That was an interesting discussion. If Obama gets elected, I can retire and have my health care paid for. They don’t give health care to retired football coaches. You have to pay for your own.”

The most interesting battle pits quarterback Chris Turner against Jordan Steffy and neither one throws a pass. Turner is an Obama supporter; Steffy likes McCain.

“There are a handful of McCain guys on the team, not a lot,” Turner said. “The red side and the blue side.”

Turner said he would consider running for public office some day down the road.
