Ok, I have to mention this article by Pat Forde (a 323 favorite) about Darren McFadden (aka the Swiss Army Running Back, and another 323 favorite). It's pretty incredible for a number of reasons:
1: McFadden's mother had a serious drug addiction, and TWELVE children. Darren has been through a LOT in his young life. Let's hope that his large family is a gift for him, and not a situation where his talents are being relied on to take care of everyone. That's just too much weight for any young man to bear.
2: McFadden's interview is hilarious. He literally says nothing. I'd like to think he was inspired by Bill Belichick.
3: I think the story about how he injured his toe is very telling. He did it kicking the shit out of a guy at a bar (bad) who was trying to steal his brother's car (well, good, he was standing up for his brother, that's admirable) at 4am (bad, why the hell was he at a bar, especially when he's only 19). He was wearing flip-flops at the time (moderately hilarious).
Super utility knife, or Arkansas running back?
McFadden is both. Hell, with him on their side,
Switzerland wouldn't need to be neutral.
