We had no idea (and could've been the last to know...excuse us)that Tim Brown, former star wide receiver for the Oakland Raidersand Notre Dame, has an investment-advice column.In this one, he talks up Starbucks as a stock pick, saying it "hasgreat brand recognition and customer loyalty here in the U.S., so Idon't see its competitors encroaching substantially on theStarbucks' clientele."Brown makes an interesting point that whilethe Starbucks is getting hit by rising food costs, all of itscompetitors are as well. Additionally, he says their closing of 600stores will only help the chain.But if you don't careabout Brown's investment opinions and are only interested in hison-the-field skills, check out below the killer punt return he didfor Notre Dame against USC in1986.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mZzCth2CxPs]
