My $0.02: What I’d Tell A-Rod
So lets start with full disclosure.
Parachutes are for SISSIES!
They’ve taken this video down most everyplace.
If you haven’t heard about..or seen it..here you go!
A guy jumps out of a plane from 25,000 feet.
He has no parachute.
And he’ll land in a net.
And they showed it on live tv.
And I can’t believe ANY of it.
Until I saw it!
Charles Tillman Retires – Adios “Peanut Punch!”
This guy just retired.
Never wanted to “talk”..just let his game do it.
Very Old School.
4th…FOURTH..All Time in turnovers forced.
And a Walter Payton Man of the Year Award Winner.
“Solid” sometimes sells a guy short. It shouldn’t here.
Charles Tillman was never a “Star”..but he CHANGED games.
I’ll take a guy or 3 like that everyday.
Here you go – Take a Look..and “Good on Ya” Peanut!

The Greatest Moments In Sports
I’m not sure who put this video collection together..bravo and take a bow..and it might not have “every” great moment in it..but if youve got 6 or so minutes and you’re a sports fan..this is for you. !
It’s just a quick reminder of “Some You Win..Some You Lose,” and the wins and the losses are not all created equally. I’ve said for years..the joy of my win should only be topped by the pain of your loss.
So many of these moments I had no dog in the fight. Probably the same with you. But it doesn’t make any less the excitement and “Can you believe that” conversations we’ve had about so many of these.
So hit “PLAY” on the video below. Sit back..or lean forward..and enjoy for the first time..or second..or 100th..some of the reasons why sports are phenomenal, joyous, and heartbreaking.

DO YOU KNOW THE ENEMY?
As a Dirty Birds fan..you want to grab as much information as you can on YOUR team.
You want to know what other people think of them. What they say and write. The perception of someone outside of the area.
What are the problems…as well as the answers.
Weaknesses and strengths.
Are you “upticking” or “trending downwards”.
And ultimately..are you a playoff team or not.
Well you are joined by 31 other sets of fans across the NFL landscape.
What I’m going to do here is link camp video..that will give you an idea as to what “their guys” think about “the other guys”.

Recovering From An INSANE “OH $%@^#” Moment
An internal scream is a real thing. It’s the scream in your head that nobody but you can hear.
