Andrew Luck has always had the “aw shucks” look to him, hasn’t he? I’m not saying he’s Gomer Pyle or anything, but the now former Indianapolis Colts quarterback never actually seemed like he was a professional athlete. He’s a little awkward. He seemed a little overwhelmed with the attention. He was just the guy next door. Maybe that persona is why so many Colts fans are pissed off at the former No. 1 overall pick’s decision to abruptly retire from the NFL, because he seemed like one of them.
As the entire league still recovers from the shocking news of Andrew Luck’s retirement, more and more people are showing their support for the four-time Pro Bowler. Whether it’s current or former players applauding him for making such a bold decision, or fans wondering if Luck will ever get the itch to return to football again, one story that came out was from a former showrunner for NBC’s Parks and Recreation, Mike Schur, who saw firsthand how Luck’s two cameos on the show impacted the cast and crew in a positive way.
