    RIP. Used to be one of my favorite players on that amazing Denny Green D, him and Griffith were quite the tandem. He was a class act.

    Wow this one hurts.
    OT was everything that a professional athlete was suppose to be.
    Never got as much recognition as he deserved though.

    We could sure as hell have used his services right now.
    OT and Robert Griffith were quite the tandem.

    "There are 3 things that sell in America:
    Violence, sex, and drugs.
    The only way you are going to make this game more appealing to the public than it was before is if there are on field orgies at halftime and the domes become massive opium dens."

    What a sad day, Only 37, I'm glad that link mentioned Jimmy K's memory of his teammate, and the good things he did, as well as a positive outlook, We could all stop and think about how good we have it waking up every morning with our health.
































    R.I.P. OT
    Even if the Vikings lose, I can still find happiness in Bears, and Packer losses.

    Ok, Jake Reed just twittered me back, after I said "Sorry to hear about Orlando etc." This was his response. "Thanks, but OT is still hear! I just spoke to he and his wife!"

    OT is not dead!
