You better not have jinxed us just now.

I thought of that and crossed my fingers while I typed that so we are good.

That is why he looks reborn in Denver - He is going to be so awesome.... than there is the much improved DT, the refined route running Decker and the emerging unstoppable TE Julius Thomas. We are going to average 36 points a game and Manning is going to throw for 6000 yards.

Nate's journalism work is truly original and interesting. It is a glimpse into the inner workings of the NFL that fans usually don't see. Nate should expand his work by telling the stories of other players (he could interview them). Nate is the only one writing this kind of stuff.

As someone cursed with bad hamstrings I feel bad for him. It is so frustrating to try and play a sport and keep pulling them. You can't do anything when that muscle is pulled.

I actually feel like this isn't so bad in HS. Most kids need way more motivation. My coach was like that and it fueled me.

Images of my curly red-haired Jr. High Football Coach, with flaring nostrils, shouting at me "I'm going to rip off your head and spit down your throat!"

Thanks for the memories He was a good dude.

I had a coach in middle school named Coach Mesa. A kid I was friends with wanted to go out for football. Mesa catches wind of it and would dog this kid every day in gym. "You know in football, you have to run. You run like set cement".

Charming guy.

Charming guy.

My coach, Mr. Spiller, was also the Math/Algebra teacher. Some days he would play guitar (Aqua Lung or House of the Rising Sun), or tell original stories. One story he called "The Contessa", where he told the story of a Contessa who chained people up and tortured them in her dungeon. He would turn the lights off, and take a few class periods telling in graphic detail his concocted fable. Super-cool to junior high kids like us.

Mesa was just a gym teacher. Crabby, beat down by life, a-holish old bastard.
