And he's definitely a hard core twitter player. He has plenty of nice looking ladies tweetin' him up constantly. It seems to be one of his methods, and it seems to be working just fine.

Being a football player at Michigan clearly has extracurricular advantages.

A lot of people will look back on photos of themselves in flat brimmed hats and be very embarassed.  Its one thing if it is to the side or back and flat, but straight on and flat just looks ridiculous.  I can't even decide who it looks worse on - white or black dudes?  Oh, now I remeber the answer to that - Tate.  Sorry, man.  It looks bad.  Really bad.

Maybe growing up in California has changed my perspective.  I see people wearing flat brimmed hats all the time.  I personally don’t like it, but I see it all the time. 

What I think is stranger is the cotton hats with the over exaggerated curved brim.  I would describe it as East coast frat boy douche bag look.

The next time Kelvin Grady is getting reps at running back, I wouldn't be surprised if Martell Webb misses his block on Craig Roh...

"I like to, you know, romantic dinners."

Haha that was epic! I know it's intimidating being in front of the camera, but I'm sure he's never going to hear the end of that from his teammates!

What a complete dork.  I mean that in the nicest way.

Honestly, I expected some of these guys to come off like complete thugs, but in video after video they've proven they're pretty much just dorky teenage boys who happen to be able to benchpress a moose or two.

Just because they play football? Because of where we live and work and shop and eat out, we run into lots of athletes and at worst they just want to mind their own business, and at best are really polite to us old folks and really friendly to our kids.

Kelvin Grady's been on the top of that list since he was a freshman, actually.  Nice guy to complete strangers.

I have had the same experience, as it happens.  I don't usually approach athletes when I see them around town, but I tend to see them doing things like--I kid you not--buying milk at Meijer at 11 pm on a Friday.  Or bowling with their friends.

But you know, when the camera is rolling and it's all about showing the world what a tough athlete you are, ready for the season, ready to pound opponents into the turf, I expected a little more posturing.  More sports cliches, more tough talk.  You know, like how they hunker down for team photos so it looks like they have no neck.  Toughness.

So, for me, it's disarming how normal and even goofy/dorky they have been on camera.

"Well, isn't it true what they say about guys with big noses?"


"You know... Big nose, Big-..."

"Oh, no no no. That only works for long noses, my friend."

In the building. Played lunch time ball with him at MVP in g.r. When he was in between basketball and football. Kid is alright, and a Michigan man at that.
