By all accounts, Shazier is a good man.  Honorable even.   I’m confused why you think he’s a villain.   It seems like you’re projecting false intentions onto him, probably just because you root against the Steeler’s and are maybe the type that has to vilify opposing athletes to justify to yourself, how strong your passion and negative feelings towards them are.   I know a lot of people that do that, and I guess it’s ok, as long as you are still able to admit to yourself that it’s ultimately fictional.   mental construct, created by you, for you, that only exists inside of you.   

Now, in reality,  I don’t think any of us know Ryan in person...  although maybe someone here does, I don’t know.    But we have read a lot about him, his own words, his own beliefs and values, his parents words, his friends and teammates, and we have heard a lot about what a great guy he is, how inspiring he is, and how much the people that do know Ryan, love and admire him.   The point is...  we have a pretty good and consistent picture of Ryan as being a man of high character.   He does not come across as the type of person who is even capable of thinking about intentionally injuring someone, let alone  putting that thought into action.   That would be well out of line from what we know of his character, and therefore highly unlikely.   Ridiculous even.

I love watching this guys videos!   I comment on them fairly often.  That’s why I was asking on here a few months ago, if anybody had some decent Ted Ginn Jr highlights that don’t look like they were filmed under water.  I wanted to send it to Jacob, and watch him be amazed at the pure speed.  

He was in tears after watching Nate Ebner’s story recently.   

There’s just something so enjoyable about watching someone discover football and fall in love with it as an adult, the same way we all did as kids.

He prolly just likes the fake mystique of their helmets. I had a bunch of dumb contrarian friends who fell for it too, Back when they where young impressionable children who went astray.

Man I really loved that one on the bottom left.   That would have looked so classy on TV.   

It also doesn’t strain your eyes as much as the others do.   Seems balanced, color-wise, and center court, out of bounds, and within the 3-point line, are all clear and visually distinct areas.   Also the football helmet stripe!  I’m honestly surprised it only got 12%

God Bless you man.... I'm glad you got to experience a win!   I have a different disease, but I can sort of relate.  keep your head up and stay positive.  I appreciate and admire your attitude.  you're a blessing to the rest of us, just by existing.

i'm pretty angry about this game.   the game was over.  Browns won in regulation.   in a few days, the league will "apologize" for overturning the game clinching first down.  but the damage is already done.   this is mind numbing.

Pryor did even lift his arms.  Kept them straight at his sides.   I’m honestly not sure what he was even trying to do.   It looked like he was trying to avoid contact.   But what if the Reciever had regained his balance?  Then we would have given up another long touchdown run after the catch.   

I honestly think it would have been better for Pryor to at least wrap his arms around the guy.   I just don’t understand anything that occurred on that play.  The whole thing was just awkward.

Thanks man.   You too.   Isn’t it crazy? I don’t know why, but I always feel so much more peaceful afterwards.   I sometimes wonder if I would have ever become a serious musician, if it wasn’t for the therepuetic aspects I got from playing guitar.

Thanks man.  I appreciate it.

Nice!  My kinda dude.   I like painting and photography too, but I was so obsessed with Guitar that I never actually got around to much of the other two.

Guitar and Music Composition.   I guess I was always enthralled by music but never realized that it was a little more than most people.  When I started playing, it met two needs, it was a necessary creative outlet, and also therapeutic.   I would lose myself for hours.   Then when I went to college to study it, I was practicing guitar like 4 to 8 hours, and studying composition another 8 hours a day.   It was exhausting but It was immersive.   After I graduated, I shaved a few hours off of the daily routine, but I still kept up with it.   I’m just obsessed with working towards being the greatest musician I can be.   I don’t even really know why.  It just feels like what I’m supposed to do.  And I really do honestly use Sports, and hardworking, dedicated athletes, as my examples to follow.   Reading about these guys perfecting their craft, inspires me to get on it myself.

Now I have been very sick and disabled the past few years.   I can no longer play everyday, but I still try, as much as I can.  Sometimes my hands are just too weak, painful, or shaking too badly, or I am too weak to get out of bed, but you better believe, I am laying there planning my next session, whenever that might be, and watching YouTube videos trying to keep learning.
