What do you get when you combine the love of college football in the United States, with the complete and utter adorableness of dogs playing fetch? This video clip.
This black lab is a member of the Boise State University football team (the Broncos). Ordinarily a team staffer runs out on the field after kick off to fetch the tee … Not the case here. “Kickoff Kohl” loves his role like like flowers love the morning sun.
A video posted on Friday took the Internet by storm. Other, older, videos of our happy little friend surfaced as well including a feature on ESPN – The comment “I love his aggressiveness and the way he gets after it” has me in stitches every time.
For the world of sports entertainment, professional and otherwise, this should be an indicator that there are more avenues to explore to draw in the casual sports fan.

Up until today, the only time I had ever mentioned Boise, Idaho in any context was when referring to this Mitch Hedberg joke. It’s starting to sound like I need to book a trip – Boise is apparently hilariously entertaining.
