Barry Sanders would resign presidency before his term was up

  • Published in Letters

To The Daily Sun,

I noticed your headline on one of the letters today (October 24th) where you listed Barry Sanders as a possible president. Someone had the wrong contact sport (football) on their mind when doing the headlines.

Although... it is an interesting concept. If Barry Sanders was president we would see a lot of brilliant footwork and change of direction behind the line, followed either by a 1 or 2 yard loss, or by a burst leading to a 60 yard gain. However, he would end up retiring/resigning from the presidency early, when a goal obtained by no one else was in sight.

(Editor's note: The correct reference would have been to U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont. Barry Sanders is a Hall of Fame running back for the Detroit Lions.)
