Sunday column: This bloke's got hang time

Happy Mother's Day everyone!

Taking my mom to an early dinner this afternoon and I hope all of you are also doing something special for your moms today, if they're still with us. If your moms have passed, find time to remember the woman who brought you into the world or the one who took care of you in this world, or both.

If you want, you can leave a rememberance to your moms in the comments section. (No, it's not a football topic but some things are more important than football. Yeah, I said that.)

As far as Dolphins football is concerned, the column I wrote for today's Herald tells you about a bloke who discovered punting by accident and now has a chance to make the Dolphins. 

Jy Bond is an interesting kid. He's Miami's raw punting prospect and a longshot to beat out Brandon Fields in the coming minicamp.

But part of being raw also means Bond has a booming leg and much untapped potential. You should read what Bond did during his Dolphins tryout that got general manager Jeff Ireland's attention.

And you can also read about the difficulties of trying to make it in a sport played half a world away from his home in Australia.

As Bond would say, cheers mates!
