Jeremy Shockey: Philosopher King

From Jeremy Shockey's Twitter account:

"today you will never get back.... what did you do????"

Wise words from a wise man. For he is truly a leader of men (well, mostly women) and one who can identify with us common plebs. Why, not twenty-three minutes earlier, he wrote:

"Just got home from practice.... setting on sofa tunr into sleeping on sofa haha.. how is everyone?"

To paraphrase the great poet Rudyard Kipling, the mighty J-Shock is able to walk with kings but not lose the common touch that is crashing on one's couch on a lazy afternoon.

For this is a man who knows and enjoys the finer things in life...

"just got my 69 dodge charger R/T in new orleans... lets race!!!!!!!"

But is no stranger to wants, desires and missed opportunities.

"would loved to have meet Torrie Wilson the ex wrestler"

The wise man understands that there is always work to be done...

"sleeping is for the dead!!!!"

And places high value on individuality and the virtues of being one.

"whatever floats your boat.. we all cant be the same if we were what a boring place this would be"

And let's never forget: it's good to be the king sometimes.

"damn vanessa came out with some more nude photos!! Going to hurt her chances for playboy hhaha"

In other, non-philosopher king news, I cannot recommend enough Bradley Handwerger's piece on Saints defensive lineman Anthony Hargrove.

And everyone's favorite feline aficionado won the punting gig this week. Huzzah for Tommy Morstead! Thundercats, ho!
