By the way, the guy signed a $36 million contract in the offseason, so clearly this isn’t a matter of cutting costs. You won’t see Barwin sitting in his kitchen, clipping coupons for a discount on Cocoa Pebbles. He must be a true believer in the danger of fossil fuel emissions (that’s a thing, right?). The Philadelphia transit authority couldn’t be happier with the free publicity.
I was almost ready to declare my total admiration for Connor and his environmentally conscious ways, until I stumbled across one troubling fact. When Barwin played for the Texans, when not taking the bus, he regularly drove a Toyota Prius to and from practice.
I’m sorry, but I’m deducting several admiration points for that. For obvious reasons. And if you’re unable to figure out those reasons, you’re part of the problem.
