  1. "That must be a rich man's sport."

    As if you aren't a rich man now, lol. Always good to be humble and remember your roots, though. Couldn't be happier that he's on my favorite team.

  2. Nice to get to know more about him. Seems like a real gentleman who thinks deeply about where he came from and where he could have ended up under different circumstances.

  3. Best runningback in the league. period. With the best QB handing him the ball off, lining up to the best WR in the league too.

  4. I wish some day express you in person how much you help me on my life, if it wasn't for you I would be death by now, you saved my life 2 years ago, I love You bro.
