This was in response to me saying: Your gonna pick off 2 Drew Brees passes come Sunday in N’awlins man.
All the times I sent Josh Cribbs a tweet, I never heard back shit. He didn’t appreciate my encouragement. Things are looking up already for this former Browns fan.
So I’m a day late with Five Pick Friday. I woke up Friday morning feeling as sick as I ever have before. This morning it was even worse. I’m pressing on, and I’m gonna get my five picks down before I lay down on my death bed.
I’ve been with my girlfriend for five years today. Hard to believe. She’s grown from a young lady who used to give me a hard time about drinking too much and spending too much time on projects like this very blog to my best friend and someone who I’m sure will always be a fixture in my life. Just thought that after five long and wonderful years with someone; it was worth a mention even if this is a football blog.
