The word spread across one smart phone after another:
Danny Werfel appointed by President Barack Obama as the new Acting IRS Chief.
“Yeah he went into Politics!”
It’s amazing to me how so many “in the know” guys were saying this yesterday afternoon!
The news spread like wild fire!
As for the women, well, most were saying, “Who?” Yes this could be viewed as slightly sexist, but it was true non the less.
As for me, I thought it was hard to belief when I heard it, and for a moment almost got suckered into the internet spawned and he said she said rumor, until , that is, – I looked at my smart phone news feed.
No, my smart phone is not “smarter” than anybody elses. I just thought to my self, Hmmm I thought he spelled his name with a “u”.
Sure enough, Danny Wuerffel was “The University of Florida QB” who won the Heisman Trophy and was drafted by the Saints and would eventually end up playing for the good all “ball coach”, Steve Spurrier, and the Washington Redskins.
He did NOT go into politics but rather began work with Desire Street Ministries in New Orleans and eventually wrote a book called Tales From the Gator Swamp.
Danny Werfel did not play professional sports but rather became a lawyer and played for the Justice Department eventually starting as the controller for the Office of Management and Budget in 2009.
Both Danny’s however, were good for a chuckle and, for a brief moment in internet history, brought together by an unlikely news feed.
And a bunch of guys.
