The holidays are a reminder for us to be thankful for what we have and to give to others. In that spirit, Brooklyn Nets rookie center Jarrett Allen decided to give, while also teaching a very valuable life lesson to some middle schoolers.
In a day and age when much of society is looking to take, Allen offered an important lesson to his young fans and America’s youth — Thanksgiving is a time of giving. And sometimes, that gift may be something you can purchase, but many times that gift may be in the form of a valuable life lesson you can pass on.
Fresh off a four-touchdown performance against Tennessee, Roethlisberger said on his weekly radio show that such critics “don’t know what they are talking about.”
“In a way it’s like, ‘Wait a second, you’re going to take a shot at me and you don’t know me?'” Roethlisberger said on his Tuesday show, which is broadcast on 93.7 The Fan Pittsburgh. “I’m going to go out here and bust my butt every day and be limping with bruises and put my body and my family through this and not care? You’re absolutely nuts.”
“I laughed about it,” Roethlisberger said on his radio show about the narrative. “[It’s] why is Ben still playing if he doesn’t care? If he’s not playing well, he must not care about it. It couldn’t be further from the truth. You don’t know what you’re talking about.”
If the Royals lose all three of the free agents to which they’ve made qualifying offers (Eric Hosmer, Mike Moustakas, Lorenzo Cain), they could have five of the first 40 picks in the next draft. Knowing that bounty is on the way to inject life into the minor-league system, it will then be tempting to go all-in on a sell-off: Salvador Perez, Danny Duffy, Whit Merrifield, etc. It’s hard to see how K.C. contends by trying to replace that trio with lesser options from the free-agent market, so what choice is there but to jumpstart a rebuild?
