Having been retired from the NFL for over three years now it’s always fun to run into my former teammates. During pre-game of the NFL wild card round between the Packers and the Washington Redskins I crossed paths with Aaron Rodgers and we reminisced about old times.
Today’s post is about a topic that I feel needs to be addressed stat. To me it seems that society today is falling and falling hard. The issue boils down to one single trait that plagues the masses and not only has this trait become accepted by society, but it is actually even encouraged and applauded. Tune in to find out how to combat this truly sick and very large problem.
