A long long time ago, in a land far far away....

There was a man born to a virgin mother, conceived by a god himself. His earthly fathers ancestry was of royal descent. His conception was announced to the mother by an angel while shepards witnessed the birth itself. After his birth, he was in grave danger as the king was to have him killed, so his family fled and hid. At age 30 he was baptized. He was later taken to the desert and tempted by the devil, which he overcame. He was known for raising people from the grave, and gave sermons on mounts, and had disciples that followed him. He was executed beside of two thieves and buried in a tomb. Two women later discovered the tomb to be empty after 3 days. In the future it is said he will return and reign over the earth for 1000 years.

This of course is the story of Horus, and occurred thousands of years before the birth of Jesus. Interesting, no?

I've heard this bed time story before. Then he and a group of freedom fighters blow up a space station, he goes to a jungle to learn from a green muppet how to pick things up with his mind, he learns a black man is his father, and then finally defeats the evil empire once and for all with the help of some midgets in teddy bear suits, right?

For some reason this thread put Don McLean's "American Pie" lyrics in my head.

Damn you Zod!

Cook was allegedly involved in an incident with a woman on June 23 outside of a Tallahassee bar, Clydes & Costellos, according to a heavily redacted incident report obtained by the Sentinel. The woman, according to a separate probable cause affidavit compiled by the Tallahassee Police Department, had bruises and abrasions after refusing to give her phone number or go home with an FSU football player. A probable cause affidavit stated one unidentified man approached the woman for her phone number and spoke about taking her home with him. She declined, stating she had a boyfriend. The man and a group of friends identified as five to seven FSU football players, including Cook, began to get into a heated argument with her. She told investigators a person got too close to her and she pushed him away, prompting a man she later identified as Cook to punch her multiple times in the face http://www.orlandosentinel.com/sports/florida-state-seminoles/os-fsu-dalvin-cook-accused-battery-20150710-story.html
    • And you can find a Terek Hill or Gaberial type in later rounds ..  IF i get a RB i want a 20 to 25 carry guy that can run inside and out.. Catching the ball is gravy but the most important part is being able to carry the load and kill the clock in the 4th qrt..
