“I grew up without cable and without air conditioning. Things aren’t that bad yet.”This isn’t as tough a situation as when I came out of college, and there were reports of seven positive drug tests, and I was a 21 year old man. I was coming to the worst franchise in pro football, and Sam Wyche was running a five ring circus, and my teammates were calling me ‘super rook’ because they didn’t want me here.

Gerstner, who is a bigger mack than Bill Gates, Larry Ellison, Steven Jobs or any of dem ho’s combined. Dude turned that computer company (IBM ed.) around and wrote a book about it. Who Says Elephants Can’t Dance? (Harper Business) is on some straight gangsta shit.

It would be my dream for us to be a five piece, of course I’d love to hear these songs with a sweet organ track, or an extra guitar, but a lot of it is just the fact that the 3 of us are very close people. It would definitely be a weird shift to just add some fourth guy. But if you’ve heard the new record, on the song “Shortcut Days,” the acoustic guitar rhythm thing is as important as the lead line, they both need to be there, we couldn’t play it live without both of them.

Why it’s good: Just like Darby, Williams is a member of the Bills’ 2015 draft class. With nine total touchdowns as a rookie, he outperformed expectations for a fifth round draft pick by a mile.

It is tragic that a talented young man who had every chance to escape his troubles and make a positive contribution to the world chose a path that just went deeper into the thicket. The whirlwind world of professional sports, despite its glamour, isn’t always a good fit. His childhood couldn’t prepare him for it, and left to his own devices, he made terrible decisions..

Last weekend, Garrard called Jets general manager John Idzik and asked for another opportunity.

The highly unusual decision, made by HHS officials outside the normal budget process, sparked outrage from researchers who said much of the data that had been painstakingly collected for years would become useless if the studies were ended early.

And finally, the Dolphins will need to take a good look in the mirror and decide if they are entering a season that has “win now” in the cards, or if they need to tear the entire thing down and rebuild it again.
