TWEETS:

You think you're winning, my friend, but you're losing. Humble yourself and fix it before it's too late.

We got better today while stayed the same!! Lol RT: : Goodmorning World!! Let's go get it today!

Oh boy, will be answering questions about that tweet very soon

Why do people make fake twitter accounts of real people??? Are they that lonely???

Headed bak to the States, had a great time in Dominican Republic. Have to come bak again!

And congrats to Mr and Mrs

Great workout today

Yeah, we still love you. And the BBQ sauce is off the chain RT haha thanks for that

Workout was a monster but no one said this journey would be easy!

One more caveat: basically anyone who leaves Nola for Atlanta is scum. Caveat to caveat: . I forgive him.

One exception: Bobby Hebert. Asshole made it personal. Chose Falcons for a reason. Did stupid flapping thing on sidelines. He's dead to me.

Happy birthday to Sedrick Ellis () - the DT turns 27 today!

Goodmorning World!! Let's go get it today!

Good morning world!!! Let's make this week a great one.

Just finished a great workout

Imagine what the world would be like if we all chased God like we chase money!! (Proverbs 2:4-6 ESV)

"What you put into something is what you get out!" Time to go dominate this workout so I can dominate next season!
