Good Morning! First of all, that picture of Joe Staley was made me laugh so hard, I couldn't NOT use it. Anyways, OTAs have winded down, and now the mandatory stuff begins.
But before that can happen, we have the calm. The point where everything mellows out. Where we watch the Warriors, Sharks, or in my case, try to get through Demon's Souls for the first time (and it's very hard). A point where, well, we have to find good stuff to talk about.
Fortunately, I have you covered. I could go on about how impressed I am with Eric Rogers' story. A storywhere he had to grind, fight, and take what some would be disappointment, to make it into the NFL. You hear a lot about the kids from humble beginnings who become number 1 draft picks and the story is always better than the talent, but Rogers' story so far can go toe to toe with those. Hopefully the kid can make it finally, and put a cap on what already is pretty darn inspirational.
