So this is what they invented the interwebs for.
Can’t afford to send your kiddies to camp this summer? Are they always on the computer?
Well … drum roll, please … South Carolina football coach Steve Spurrier has the answer for you.
Allow me to introduce Steve Spurrier, virtual football camp counselor and Mr. Rogers wannabe. The Ol’ Ball Coach has started his own online football camp for kids at www.campspurrier.com.
Spurrier also promises parents that he’ll teach kids about the importance of living a “healthy, active lifestyle.”
That means kids can create cartoon characters of themselves and explore a virtual world full of games and life lessons from the legendary former Florida coach.
In his first “pep talk” video to promote the camp, Spurrier tells the wee ones, “I’m not only a football coach. I’m a football fan, too, and I love watching football and telling people about it.”
No word on when Junior will have his competing site up, but you’ve got to figure it’s a natural for a guy who started a Twitter feed only because Mark Richt did. Plus, it’s another key way for the Laner to connect with an important recruiting demographic.
