Mystery of Bush Messages Revealed
Many college football fans have noticed that Reggie Bush has been writing special messages on the tiny black strips he's been wearing under his eyes this season. Those strips, designed to mimic traditional eye black but without the smeary side effects, are worn to reduce glare from the sun or other bright lights.
Bush has been adding his own personal touch to the eye black strips, writing 619 or SE on them with a marker. The 619 is easy enough to figure out; it's the area code of his home city of San Diego. But what about the SE?
"It stands for South East [San Diego]," said Bush.
He says both messages are his way of saying hello to friends back home.
"I don't ever want to forget where I come from."
