Tae Odoms, Vincent Smith, and the Robot Hustle Crew released video update #1 for the Pahokee Eating Garden. The video shows the future site of the garden and what can be expected when it is complete. Great job, Tae, Vince, and anyone who has helped out with the kickstarter!
Any mod help to embed the video into the OP would be appreciated!
Just happened to notice that Vincent Smith is hosting an AMA (ask me anything) on Reddit right now to promote his kickstarter for a painting program.
You'll need a reddit account to ask him questions, but it should be entertaining for us. I imagine there will be at least a dozen questions asked about the Clowney hit.
As a heads-up to everyone here, four former football players from last year will be signing autographs at Gibraltar Trade Center in Taylor (admission $2/car) from 2:00-4:00 pm on Sunday, 3/17:
- Will Campbell ($10/autograph)
- Vincent Smith ($10)
- Jordan Kovacs ($10)
- Roy Roundtree ($15)
They're offering a great deal where you can get all four guys for $30, meaning you save $15.
I've acquired a decent number of in-person autographs there through the years, and while it's a pretty rednecky kind of place, it's worth it to meet these four guys for sure. The signings will be going on during their usual monthly card show, which is also worth checking out.
I have been a loyal Sports Illustrated reader for over a decade, but this week's issue is causing me to question whether I will keep my subscription. Not only is Braxton Miller on the cover (alongside their normal march madness cover??) but there is a long-form article devoted to the Clowney/Smith hit, some two months after the fact...
Sometimes the hits just keep on coming. Is it football season yet?
I got the Hope for Pohakee kickstarter update tonight and saw that Martavious linked Vincent Smith' new project. It seems that Smith is seeking funds to start teaching art classes in Pohakee which is great. I remember a post and article from over the summer that mentioned something about Smith and his art.
Can't say I'm the biggest art buff, but I support what Smith is trying to do. MGOBLOG has been great at getting these kickstarters going and helping an ex-player is pretty cool too.
Here is the link:
Also remember this guy almost got killed by Clowney, least you could do is donate a couple of bucks.
I know we all tired quickly of the replay of Clowney's hit on Vincent Smith. One of the guys at WolverineNation did a short article about Smith's perspective on the hit.
A good read and the best part of the article is how pissed Smith's older brother got at the endless replays for the next two weeks (can't say I blame him!). "Smith's older brother, Jaworski Bowie, actually took the impact of the hit harder. Bowie texted his younger brother, perturbed the hit was being shown ad nauseam. It reached the point where Smith told his brother to stop. Smith wasn't bothered by it, so why should his brother be? Besides, Smith said, he has been hit harder."
Smith's feeling on the hit reminds me of Jim Carey's great line in Liar, Liar, "I've had better."
