A police officer in South Carolina was able to talk a bridge jumper down by talking football.

The cop brought up football while talking to this man, who was sitting on the ledge of a bridge, and once they found something they agreed on, the suicidal man surrendered.

The man who wanted to take his own life likes the Washington Redskins and the cop does too. However, when the cop said that he hates the Dallas Cowboys, the man immediately surrenders.

It's as if the two men immediately bonded when the officer stated he hates my Dallas Cowboys.

Too bad the Cowboys beat the Redskins this past weekend, but I'm glad this topic and hate for the Cowboys saved this man's life.
