When (sons of) legends collide

It is going to be a fun summer in Southern California as the sons of legends go head to head.

The sons of Joe Montana and Wayne Gretzky are competing for the same quarterback position at the same high school, Oaks Christian in Ventura, Calif. (My colleague Graham Watson covered this story from a college perspective in her blog.)

At least you know the coach will not play favorites. How can you choose Joe Cool over the Great One, or vice versa?

The most interesting part of this story is that the Montanas are moving from the Bay Area, where Joe Montana remains an icon, so his son can be closer to his quarterback coach. The kid lives in the same house as arguably the greatest quarterback of all-time. He needs to move 400 miles for more coaching?
