    Fiesta Bowl star Johnson has hired wedding security because of racist threats

    http://sports.yahoo.com/ncaaf/news?slug=ap-boisestate-johnson&prov=ap&type=lgns
    BOISE, Idaho (AP) -- The Boise State running back who scored the winning points in the Fiesta Bowl, then proposed to his cheerleader girlfriend on national television, says he has hired security for their wedding because of racial threats.

    Ian Johnson, who is black, and Chrissy Popadics, who is white, are due to be married Saturday in Boise.

    Since his Jan. 1 proposal, Johnson said, he has received phone calls, letters and some personal threats from people who object to their marriage plans.

    Or.....racist who cant let go of the passed. Racism is much a deeper than a football game. This made national news, its not just sooner fans that are doing this, as a matter of fact there are probably very few.

    I knew that was going to happen when he did it. I hate to think that way but some people are just not open for change.
    I hope he has a good wedding!
