    Cool Troy Aikman iz a collige graduit.

    Aikman getting college degree 20 years later - NFL - Yahoo! Sports

    Thought this was a nice story.

    DALLAS (AP)—Troy Aikman’s passing days didn’t end when he retired from the Dallas Cowboys.
    The Hall of Fame quarterback says he’s passed his two final college courses and will graduate in June from UCLA—20 years after he left for the NFL.
    The Dallas Morning News reported Tuesday that Aikman is getting a bachelor’s degree in sociology and will participate in UCLA’s graduation ceremonies.
    The 42-year-old Fox Sports broadcaster says he’s “finally taking care of unfinished business.”
    Aikman says he promised his mother, when he left school just two courses shy of a degree, that he would return and finish.
    Aikman’s final two courses included a class on race and ethnicity, and another on aging.

    He earned an “A” for both.

    Congratulations Troy!

    I beat you to it by a few years, though. Too bad there wasn't a way to sneak him onto the football field all these years because a 42 year old Aikman is still better than a Kevin Craft.

    Aw, that's my boy!!
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...
