I have a six and a three year old. As a result the Ol' Rider is often reduced to doing things that......wellllllll.....let me just say are less than "adult" in nature. Last year I took a week off of work and instead of doing something I wanted to do I spent a week in Disney World Hell. Instead of spending all of my money on things that I want-- I spend it on crap that they break about 30 minutes after they get it. Instead of going to lunch at lunch I am often running out to Toys R Us for whatever new wonderfully marketed piece of crap they want.
When you deal with children you cannot approach it as if you are dealing with an adult. Often times children can be frustrating. If you have been at work all day dealing with adults it can be difficult to return home and shift gears into the world of a child. One thing that can help is to stop and say to yourself "Ok, I have to put myself in this child's mindset." Of course that is much easier if you and the child have the same struggles such as reaching the sink and getting on roller coasters (that was a Nick Saban is short joke and I did it especially for Erk's Forehead who is obsessed with the notion that I am a Bammeroid). Anyway, puberty does not an adult make and most recruits still have the mind of a child. It would appear that Saban, more than anyone else, understands the mind of the man-child.
The article focuses on Norcross, GA prospect Alvin Kamara who Saban sent 105 letters to on the same day. Now I know what you are saying:
1. That is stupid!!!!Who would be impressed with that staged crap?
- Your answer.....how about a poor black kid who lays his head down in the ghetto at night and dreams about being something more in life? How about a poor black kid in the ghetto who's grand-mother just counts him as another "guvment" check and wants nothing more than to have someone "want him" and really mean it? How about Alvin Kamara who said “It’s because they [Alabama] want me,” or
2. Woooaaahh, whoa, whoa......that is a waste of paper! How can that work with a black kid? 99.9% of blacks are Democrats and the Dems hate people who waste paper and hurt the environment!
- Your answer.....your silly environment means nothing when compared to National Titles.
Additionally, DeMarcus Walker from Jacksonville, FL tweetes us through his visit to Tuscaloosa. Now, I understand that many of our readers are rich, old, white, Republicans who may not understand the slang lingo of a 17 year old black kid. With that in mind I will write DeMarcus' tweet and then I shall interpret that tweet just below the tweet itself. Here goes:
