Did you know that Brock Osweiler committed to Gonzaga?

Because the world is slowly but surely figuring out and we will have to listen to it constantly forever and ever.

Here is a fun fact:

Which animal has the fastest metabolism?

In fact, no animal has a faster metabolism—roughly 100 times that of an elephant. Hummingbirds burn food so fast they often eat 1-1/2 to 3 times their weight in nectar and insects per day.

Here is a not-fun fact that we will hear forever and ever: did you know that Brock Osweiler once had a scholarship to play basketball at Gonzaga University?

And that is a fact that we will continue to hear as long as Osweiler is leading the Denver Broncos in wins over Tom Brady. The thing about the fact, it really is quite dumb. Osweiler orally committed to Gonzaga at the rather young age of 9th grade. He learned to love football in high school and ended up attending Arizona State instead.

That gets us to the what we will hear constantly now: looks like ol' Brock made the right decision to play football hyuk hyuk hyuk hyuk.

Sometimes, wild things happen, like athletic people changing their minds on what sport they wish to focus on (Michael Jordan, Bo Jackson, Connor Griffin), and we just have to live with the same, tired, regurgitated reminder from the announcers on air, perfectly paired with an incorrect pronunciation of Gonzaga.

Trust me, I could go on forever.
