Opera Jocks

Former Colorado Buffalo Keith Miller
We've covered the story about former University of Colorado running back Keith Miller and his transition to singing on the major stages of the world. It's an amazing story for a guy who was inspired to sing opera in college after seeing the musical "Phantom of the Opera."

You can click HERE to watch Keith Miller on ESPN talking about his transition from sports to opera.

Elliot Madore: Trading pads for opera
Now we've learned that he isn't the only opera jock around. The St. Louis American has a feature on Canadian barihunk Elliot Madore, who once played hockey and dreamed of Ice Rinks, not Ice Princesses. You can read the entire article HERE.

Madore, who recently replaced fellow Canadian barihunk Daniel Okulitch as Don Giovanni in St. Louis, now heads off to the haloed Salzburg Festival. He will be performing as part of the Young Singers Project.

  2. Why would Keith Miller pose like that? A bit strange...looks like he really enjoys himself.
