Ex-Prez Bush 43 Sends Alabama K Foster A Pick-Me-Up Note

BbPUVhQCEAACdU_George W. Bush is a Texan.  So might he have been doing a little advanced scouting on the Longhorns’ next coach when he tuned in this year’s Iron Bowl?  (Kidding.)

As every SEC fan knows by now, Auburn upset Alabama on a last-second return of a missed field goal.  While Cade Foster wasn’t the man attempting that 57-yarder, he was the guy who missed three field goals during the 34-28 Tide loss.  A number of angry Bama fans verbally abused him on Twitter.  His players then came to his defense and a large group of intelligent Crimson Tide backers did the same.

But Foster got one message of support that trumped all the rest.

As he posted online this week, Foster received a handwritten note from former President Bush that read:


“Dear Cade (#43), life has its setbacks.  I know!  However, you will be a stronger human with time.  I wish you all the best —

Sincerely –

Another 43 George Bush”


The “stronger human” line is a little awkward — did he mean “person?” — but it’s a pretty doggone nice gesture from — as the ex-President wrote — one 43 to another.
