"The Decision" Part II...Red Lightning Turns Pro

Probably the biggest shake up to hit the sports world since “The Decision” – Red Lightning hitting Twitter to tell the world he is taking his talents to the NFL. On a Sunday no less, obviously trying to minimize the fallout of Seminoles fans realizing they were losing a legend. But it all came down to the fact that he accomplished all he had set out to accomplish on the sidelines at Florida State and decided it was time to move on to the next level. Can’t blame him for that, we can only remember him for all the good times.

The highlight packages that launched a superstar…

So popular he got his very own AMA on the front page of Reddit…

All I know is that in an offseason full of turmoil, Florida State now finds themselves without one of their fiercest competitors and the unquestioned leader of their sidelines. Possibly a more devastating loss than Jameis IMO, not just for the team, but for the blog world.

Blue Thunder is still around right? Maybe he can carry the torch?
