Yet there is reason to think Thomas won't continue his steady ascent to the NFL.

DJ, wondering if I read this sentence wrong, since I don't see a reason and there also wasn't one explained on why he would not continue his ascent to the nfl. Great article tho! Stoked to see how this talent is used with new OC.

Sound difference is really noticeable at a higher level in my expirience. If you're just learning, just having a nice amp and taking care of your cables and bass is most important. In this case a $1200 bass doesn't make too much sense. But if you only want to have one, then go for it. Get a nice rig for it and a nice case. 

I taught myself how to play, a very fun expirience. Once you understand the scales, playing along with literally any kind of music is possible and enjoyable. Really a true "groove" instrument.

Depends on what style of music you enjoy and enjoy playing. I would start with a four string no matter what just to keep it basic. Go to your local guitar shop and hold a couple too atleast. Jazz basses generally have thinner fret boards with closer strong spacing, which can be harder to learn on for some. It sounds like you have atleast a tiny amount of music inclination so it's really just going to be a personal feel when you hold one. 

You don't need to spend a ton of money to get quality, but if you are going to spend some money, stick with earnie ball, rickenbacher, or American made Fender. You can't go wrong with schecter either. If you just want a cheap one get a squier. 

Overall my advice is to hold a jazz and precision bass to see which feels better on your fret hand. Also get a feel for some stings, I prefer earnie ball super slinky. 

I started playing bass about 14 years ago but I play other instruments too so I'm still not very good haha.

Not to be that guy, but i guess kinda, if you see the backside replay of the play you are referring to, Cardale put that thing into a window. Yeah Jalin was in a hole in the zone, but that was not as easy as throwing to someone wide open. Jalin was super solid and made some amazing and clutch catches/plays. These buckeyes are damn fun to watch. Upvote for you Avail!

Really tho at 27 my most proud achievement came just this year, as my 8man flag team took 4th place at the USFTL Nationals in Kissimmee, FL. We played against combined teams and some more athletic guys but we held our own. We only had 13 guys so me and couple guys never came off the field for the whole tourney. Had a blast.

I'm 27, have both forearms and the majority of my entire right arm tattooed, including one on my back and one across my stomach. 100% of my tattoos and tattoo ambitions are personal, I don't do it for anyone else and could give a shit if anyone likes mine or the idea of tattoos in general at all. Yes, they are permanent. Yes, society looks down on them generally (more so in less progressive areas). And yes, I love them. Mine are all personally significant/religious and they are also a reminder of how short life is and the importance of every single moment of every day we have. I hope they are all wrinkly, deformed, and faded by the time I'm older if I'm blessed enough to see those days. It will not only be a reminder of the amazing life i would have hypothetically lived by that point, but also a nice way to recall these days of my youth, which are the best days of my life; since they are the only ones I'm living currently.

Maybe other people don't need this reminder or have any ambition to do it. I dont care. I could judge someone by a haircut or the way they dress or by their tattoos, permanent or not, and I would not be any better off or happier in my own existence, so it would be a waste of my time and energy.

I'm much more offended by the overall inconsideration of humans in general as of recent. No one has any manners or any outward compassion for our fellow man anymore. This is the "look at me" generation and the foundation of narcissism that our morals are being built upon is a shaky one my friend. When you see someone elderly or less fortunate struggling with something, anywhere, anything, what can we do to help? Worrying about what someone wears or dresses in or puts on their body is counterproductive to what we as humans should be trying to achieve as a species. When i see someone doing a generally good deed or going out of their way to help someone else out, I don't care if they have a tattoo on their face, we need to care more about our brothers and sisters for who we are not what we look like or like to do as a hobby. I am not perfect in this, I am nowhere near perfect in anything, just my thoughts.

I understand the stance of not understanding tattoos, that's perfectly okay with me! I just hope everyone who has one or is considering getting one does not get it or change considerations based on what anyone else does or may think.
