1996 Ford Thunderbird. Delicious horses for a 17 year old considering. Had it until about 2 years ago when I bought the.. mini van.. luckily I already have my own car (Ford Fusion) which I bought 3 years ago. :)

Ditto. I continued on a different path than most football players.. as I went on scholarship to run track in college and abandoned football. Still miss football but have no regrets. :)

That's why you don't get 'trends' and get something unique and personal. :)

Deform? I hardly call my tattoo deforming myself. A lot of folks, including myself, see certain forms of body art beautiful.. like wearing a tailored suit. 

While you are free to think, you are being a bit harsh against anyone who speaks up against you when you yourself are being the 'judgemental prick' as it were to begin with. ;)

Mod edit: No religious or political comments, please.  Why do you like wheat instead of white? 

..they weren't religious or political in any way besides mentioning the fact of choice.. like you know.. the statement you left? Come on now. 

My tattoo (my entire right bicep) signifies to me where I come from and where I've been and when I complete the sleeve, it will be about my future. I love the way it looks and will always love the way it looks.

"Player Safety"

Sadly, with the 'back pad' rule, unless EZE removes it, he has no loop holes. But as noted below.. at least it didn't become a trend and rocked by the man, the myth, the legend.

I have a Note 4, simply because it was free, my Galaxy S3 had run its course, and my kids tend to use my phone. 

All in all, I'm not really addicted. Communication is my main means but when I do use it, I do enjoy the fact that I have a small TV as a phone. If the Galaxy S6 was available, I would have gotten that one however.

House of Cards has been my ownly bing show. I can watch some shows for 3-4 episodes, but nothing in the amount of HOC. 

Comment 26 Feb 2015

My brother and I both met the people we were named after, Marcus Allen (while at the football HOF a few years back) and Andre Thorton (at a track meet of mine in college). 

I've also met Mike Tyson numerous times.

I've been to 6 games so far plus 2 spring games.

  • 2009
    • New Mexico State (W 45-0): left late in the 3rd and also arrived late. Bad game to start off at
    • Iowa (W 27-24 OT): Hell of a 2nd game which we bought tickets to on Monday for an incredibly cheap price. 
  • 2010
    • Miami (W 36-24): Should have won by much more. What a disappointing slow second half.
  • 2011:
    • Penn State (L 20-14): Goal line stand was epic but other than that.. well we all know 2011.
  • 2013:
    • @Michigan (W 42-41): Great game and hilarious being surrounded by Michigan fans off in the middle of of nothingness. 
  • 2014: 
    • Virginia Tech (L 35-21): HAD to go to the only loss of the year but it did have its moments.

I've also been to the Spring Game in 2012 an 2014. Always sat in A Deck as well for all home games. This year probably go to @VT or home vs MSU. Haven't decided as of yet.

Don't get too excited. He won't be THROWING throwing until July or August.. at the earliest.

As someone who has a half sleeve tattoo and received it in my late 20's, I can tell those of you a few things: 

1. It is possible to SAVE money to pay for these things, even if it cost Zeke $1,000. Mine was $700 and it only took me a few months of saving to get there. Being that he has very supportive parents, I'm willing to bet he's one of those who doesn't need much financial help.

2. I thought long and hard about if I wanted this tattoo, which I've always told others to do if they EVER thought about getting a tattoo. I've known a number of people who HATE their tattoos after a few weeks and now regret it because they had about 15 minutes of thought. After about 3 YEARS of thought, I figured out what I want, had it drawn up, loved it, and got it done in 2 long sittings. The good thing is, mine represents something much like Zeke's.. his hometown and something he will always love.

3. I'm not worried about 30 years from now, nor am I worried about what others think about the tattoo (especially on the job front). When I'm old, who cares? I'm going to be old and saggy all over. And if any other employer (which my current one does not) would judge me simply on my tattoo and not my body of work throughout my career, they aren't worth working for anyway. 

4. Get on my lawn you old folks. We sell candy and lemonade. :P
