8 Mile

“As I worked with A-Rabbit every morning at 6 AM the goal was always the same. Prepare yourself so that when the situation arises you can throw the right pitch or throw a strike for the save.

“I teach HS weight training & often use the RDL in workouts. Our football strength coach, who works with many of the same kids after school, has them doing straight-legged deadlifts.

“Ask 11 men wearing armor to impose their will on another group of 11 men wearing armor standing just across an imaginary line and see what happens. Now add 75,000 fans screaming and millions of dollars in salary and see where it gets us.

Mangled

“NFL fans, people outside, they have no clue what goes on. This isn’t like playing Madden…The thing about football is you’re directly playing with your life, the quality of it and the longevity of it…We consider football a gladiator sport because we understand you’re going to get hurt…You might not die now, like in an old Roman arena, but 5, 10 years down the road, you could… Read More »
