Pats 2010 draft pick plays the hero

By Tom E. CurranTed Larsen was my favorite draft pick by the Patriots last year. The sixth-round lineman from NC State had the greatest name and I got three hours of stupid jokes out of it."Honey, do you know if Ted Larsen returned the weed whacker? I can't find it." "Hi, Ted Larsen, CPA." "Looks like a shopping cart rolled into the minivan. Big dent. I better get Ted Larsen on the phone."Well, Ted Larsen, you're no regular Ted Larsen today. He helped save three teens whose kayak overturned in the Gulf of Mexico. Two of the teens were clinging to it and one was still in the boat, the story goes. How a kid can be in an overturned kayak, I don't know, but let's just stick to the hero stuff. Larsen was out fishing with his girlfriend. It's safe to say, he caught a very special bounty. Here's to you, Ted Larsen!
