🏈Cooper Kupp, Yakima, WA Hometown Hero
I’m old enough to remember when somebody put up a “Cooper Kupp Country” sign over the “Yakima: The Palms Springs of Washington” sign.
The week after Kupp won the Super Bowl MVP award in 2021, I remember my own coworkers trying to talk me out of begging our Mayor to get the City Council to declare a
national city holiday for Kupp so that kids could get out of school, adults could get out of work, and the tiny town of Yakima could host a big parade downtown in his honor.
