Today was a another hard day on the gridiron.
My knees are on fire.
Any good massage therapist out there? I really need one!
Training camp is almost over. Tomorrow we travel. We play Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, then we are done! Yahoo. Then the never ending NFL season begins.
I’m very excited about this season. We are going to win a lot of games. We have the talent to do just that. Everyone is healthy thus far, which is good!
One of my teammates had to take a six-hour bus ride all the way to Canada because he forgot his passport. Holy smokes. That sucks!
Now for any of you out there who may know someone who is a Burger King franchise owner, or maybe Burger King is your favorite fast food place to eat. Well I have a story for you:
So tonight, the veteran defensive linemen had a "tradition night." Tradition night consists of me, Smith, Kiesal, Kirskie, Hoke and Big Hamp. And we all ride over to Burger King to have some good ole Whoppers!
Well when we got there, we all placed out orders. Keep in mind, I have been dreaming about having a Double Whopper with Cheese, no tomatoes, and supersize the fries and drink.
Well, we were informed that the broiler was broken and that they can’t cook anymore meat, so instead we could only order five whoppers with cheese. I was pissed, and I was still hungry after eating a whopper with cheese, and a king fry.
It’s Burger King
How in the heck can’t Burger King serve burgers? They are the king of burgers! So now I’m in my room feeling like I got teased!
This week’s game will be like playing in Buffalo. We are expecting there to be a lot of Bills fans at this game. Plus I think a lot of the Toronto residents will be cheering for the Bills!
It doesn’t matter. We just show up to play regardless of what type of environment we are put in. The flight is only about 40 minutes. So the plane’s going to be up and then right back down.
I’m soooooooooooooooooooo sore! Everything is hurting. I need about a good two days off! That’s not happening any time soon.
Follow your heart! Follow your heart!
Good things come those who wait.
If you love something, set it free. If it comes back to you, it’s yours, if it doesn’t, it never was!
Have any of you ever heard those sayings, and think sometimes it’s just a bunch of crap.
That’s what someone told me tonight. Has there ever been any point in your life where you just didn’t want to hear a quote from a friend?
Sometimes you just want whatever it is bothering you to just change or be OK.
As I mentioned in my last blog, the worst thing you can do to someone in distress is offer advice, but the best thing you can do is listen and encourage!
Some people just don’t get it and some will never change. That’s why if someone or something is causing heartache and pain, it’s best to step away or cut ties.
Friends, family or associates can bring you down sometimes.
Ever watch how crabs in a bucket behave?
Just as soon as one tries to get out, it gets snapped and pulled back in by another.
Some people are just imitators. I love to always end my blogs with life lessons because I love to offer advice to those who might be going through some things.
My grandmother always told me "Son, life is uncertain, but death is sure to come!"
You only live once and it’s very important that you love yourself and who you are. God made us all different in our own unique ways. Don’t let other people make decisions for you. Because, take it from me, when you make decisions based on what other people think, you will never be happy with yourself.
Don’t be a puppet! If you find yourself making a list of reasons to explain to someone else why something is the right decision, you may be letting their opinion influence you too much — or when someone asks you why you made a certain decision, and you feel you have to justify it.
Don’t let people take advantage of you! Here is a quote by an unknown author:
"The very measure of a good relationship is in how much it encourages optimal, intellectual, emotional and spiritual growth. So, if a relationship becomes destructive, endangers our human dignity, prevents us from growing, continually depresses and demoralizes us ... and we have done everything we can to prevent its failure ... Then, unless we are masochists and enjoy misery, we must eventually terminate it."
Have a wonderful day, and if your reading this at night, Goodnight!
