LAKE FOREST, Ill. -- Devin Hester didn't plan his celebration Sunday. He's not that type of guy.
"I don't sit at home and think about what dance I'm doing in the end zone," said the Chicago Bears return man, who had "Any" stitched on the back of his left cleat and "Time" put on the right.
After all these years of watching Hester run, it's easy to believe him. He runs on instinct, and he does it better than anyone who has ever played the game. He's the Barry Sanders of returns.
In that sense, I'm pretty sure Hester is a genius, but I'm not sure which kind. I researched genius -- OK, I quickly Googled it -- and I've narrowed it down to "bodily-kinesthetic" genius (i.e. a gifted athlete) or a spatial genius (someone with the ability to recognize their relationship with space).
He's probably both.
