    I like that he isn't full of himself!! A lot of guys who get drafted in the 1st round think they are too good!! But he seems like a down-to-earth kinda guy!!!

    Re: Growing up Greenway

    A lot of people who come from a small place aren't white trash or hicks. They might be little bit saner than people who come the middle of a big city. I come from western North Dakota where you can see a dog run away for 2 days. You might have a neighbor but you can't see them. Now I live in the back woods of Hillbilly land, I love it because I can see my neigbor but they are so far away I don't have to hear them. I would go nuts if I had to live in the city. I love the sound of the running river in front of my house and the crickets and frogs at night. God bless the middle of nowhere, it doesn't mean your stupid.

    i guess it depends on how your raised.. i wouldnt mind having a vacation home where u live, but im a type of guy that i need to be in a place thats multi-ethnic... i cant be in a place where i dont have my latinos, afro-americans, euros, etc.

    No need to worry Singer, I'de be taking you to some of the finer areas of CT and Possibly RI.....Even if we where in the city for some of the times, your in good hands for sure. I was born and raised in big city areas, so I'm a bit street wise and most around here know me, so they don't screw with me at all......

    You'll still have a blast out here when visiting me.....


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    Re: Growing up Greenway

    I dont know, i live in the middle of nowhere,(northern minnesota) and it has advantages but then again it can get very boring. Of course i am 19 years old so anything can be boring :lol: . I also hate the long drives to get to anywhere, especially with the gas prices. But all in all its better than living in the city :grin: .

    I've spent my entire life living on farms or small rural towns and the press just don't get it. They just can't imagine living anywhere else but a big city and so they write articles like this all the time. Nothing against Greenway, but they all are written in the same vain -- small town, one grocery store, working farm family, work ethic. I think they teach this coure in journalism class call "Small Town Hick Writing 101."
    :lol:

    You're right Cojo...these stories are really a dime a dozen. They do get pretty annoying, but it is nice to see that he hasn't forgotten where he came from. It would be really easy for him to move away from all of that and become this fancy pants millionaire.
