Frank Alexander Reinstated

15 December 2014 - 07:22 PM

Didn't see a thread started for it.

 

 

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Frank Alexander knows he made the same mistake -- twice. He knows he let a lot of people down, including himself and his family. He knows he likely won't get a third chance if he makes the same mistake again. 

 
Defensive end Frank Alexander, who was suspended for 14 games, has been reinstated and can play in the Panthers' final regular-season games.
But the Carolina Panthers defensive end who was suspended for the first 14 games -- the first four for one violation and the next 10 for another -- for violating the NFL substance abuse policy insists he's a changed man. 
 
Now he hopes the Panthers give him a chance to prove it in the final two regular-season games against Cleveland and Atlanta. 
 
"Man, it's been a learning process and an eye-opening process," Alexander said on Monday after being reinstated. "It's just been some long 14 weeks. I stayed prayed up. I got back in the church. Every Sunday I was in church. That was a big help. 
 
"I just tried to stay focused, keep my eyes on the prize. I knew this day eventually would come.” 
 
Alexander turns 25 on Wednesday, which will be his first official practice with the team since training camp. He's pumped, even though he knows people outside the organization are skeptical he'll mess up again.

Apartment broken into, need advice

29 November 2014 - 08:52 AM

I'm getting ready for work when I thought I heard someone knock on my door which is weIrd because it's 3 am. I start to go back to the bedroom to grab my 1911 when my door is kicked in by some guy.

Long story short the police caught the guy, he was coming home drunk and thought his wife locked him out. I'm waiting on the couch for maintenance to fix the door frame, my girlfriend is terrified because this is so supposed to be a low crime area.

What I need advice on is, what's the best way to assure her this is such a rare thing to happen? And she's agreed to allow more guns in the house, we have no kids and none are ever in our apartment. I don't expect her to fire my 1911 so I need a pistol for her. Right now I would like something she can put in her purse. Also I would like a shotgun that she can use.

Anyone else watching football?

I've not seen a thread and I am deeply confused.


Comet Landing

11 November 2014 - 09:38 PM

 

London (CNN) -- Rosetta mission controllers have made the first call to "Go" for an attempted landing on Comet 67P, the European Space Agency (ESA) announced in a webcast Tuesday.

 

If it succeeds it will be the first time a spacecraft has landed on a comet.
 
Scientists say there are still a few more key decisions to take in the coming hours before a planned separation of the landing craft Philae from the mother ship Rosetta on Wednesday.
 

 

 

The Panthers may suck but that doesn't mean we can't land on a comet.
