We’re watching SportsCenter when a picture of Jerry Kill, coach of the Minnesota Golden Gophers football team, comes on the screen, accompanied by the unfortunate news that Kill suffered a seizure following the team’s 21-13 loss to Northwestern.
“He’s still alive?” my son asks. “He didn’t die?”
“He had a seizure,” I say.
“So he’s still alive, right?”
“In that case, I’m going to go ahead and say that he looks like a gopher.”
