    He is an inspiration to us all.

    We all have tough times and the example he has shown gives me and should give all of us the strength and ability to keep positive and look for the good in all situations.

    It is easy to start feeling sorry for yourself when things dont always go your way and i have been a little down lately having been laid off from my job of 13 years.

    I am going to use the example of this team and quit feeling sorry for myself and go find another job.

    Sometimes it helps to see others overcome adversity to get you on the right path again.

    Thanks Tigers for the spirit and example of positive attitude that we all can use in our own lives to be better people.

    One thing to point out is that this was on the front page of the NYTimes sports section this morning. Great exposure. I was in NY this morning and couldn't believe my eyes when I saw Big Baby and his boa on the cover.:geauxtige

    I am totally humbled and honored to have the likes of Seimone Augustus, Big Baby, T-Time, D-Mitch and Temp on my LSU Tiger teams.

    Seimone and Big Baby have especially great personal stories.

    I really miss home now.

    I can't believe I am saying this, but :

    Agreeance.

    Both teams seem like a good group of kids. I read Big Baby's story in Sports Illustrated a few weeks back. I wish him and the rest well this weekend.
