This week we have Kirk Cousins. Kirk cashed in on a 3 year 84 mill guaranteed contract with the Minnesota Vikings this week. Kirk tricked the Vikings into thinking he is an elite quarterback and deserves 84 million dollars. Which is impressive and why he is the JCB player of the week. I don’t agree, but what do I know I’m a jabroni. Good for Kirk. That 84 million dollars will buy a lot of tin foil for all the steaks he will grill.
Yes Kirk Cousins grills his steaks with tin foil underneath…
This weeks player of the week is Shaquem Griffin. Shaquem impressed scouts and put up some impressive numbers at the NFL combine this past week. What’s more impressive is that he did it with one hand. Literally.
Shaquem was born with amniotic band syndrome. Which means the fingers on his left hand were not fully developed as a child causing him pain every time he hit his hand. Having his hand properly amputated didn’t stop him from playing football. In 2017 he was the AAC defensive player of the year at UCF where he had 11.5 sacks and 92 tackles. Shaquem ran a 4.3 40 yd dash (fastest ever for a linebacker) and bench pressed 225 20 times pretty much with one hand. What is even more impressive is that Shaquem wasn’t even invited to the combine at first and now he is being considered a 4th round pick.
Today was a huge day in Town Mile History. Mike Miller liked our pictures. Yes you heard right he liked them. This is a big step towards our goal of getting him for an interview. He’s on our line now we just have to reel him in.
Happy Friday to the good Lads! The Town Mile Podcast #8 is fresh out of the frying pan for a brand-new Friday edition. It may be blowing and snowing like crazy outside in Philly, but it’s toasty warm in here and we’ve got topics from Money Mike Miller to Matt Forte’s career to cover (and a pic collage from our good friends at Pic Collage). Let ‘er rip and have an awesome weekend!
Since our fearless founder Joe Janssen started this blog/podcast he had one realistic goal in mind. Get an interview for the podcast with former NBA sharp shooter Mike Miller. For those of you who don’t know Mike and Joe were both born and bred in the great state of South Dakota, Joe from Emery and Mike from Mitchell. Joe’s father Terry Janssen was a sports writer for many years in South Dakota and had the chance to cover Mike Miller when he was in high school. Mr. Janssen was also very good friends with Mike’s former coach Gary Munsen. Joe and I know we have a great audience in South Dakota and this is our plea. If one of you great citizens from South Dakota has a connection to Mike and can some how talk him into to calling us for an interview we would be forever in your debt. I personally have messaged Mike everyday for the last three days, and honestly I will still be sending him messages in hopes that some day he will answer and talk to us.
We aren’t schmucks, we are very serious about this. Joe and I love doing the podcast and want to put out great content for our listeners. I hope this reaches some one out there and eventually reaches Mike. If that happens please DM us on twitter or on Instagram @thetownmile. Thank you for your time and Thank you to the great people of South Dakota.
This is video is wild! I can’t stop watching. It’s like if Jerry Seinfeld from The Bee Movie tried to fight Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson in scorpion king. This scorpion destroys this hornet it’s not even close. The scorpion is like Peyton Manning’s career and the Hornet is like Ryan Leaf’s career. The Scorpion is like early 2000s Tiger Woods and the Hornet is like the rest of the PGA. The scorpion is like the mutated sharks from the movie Deep Blue Sea and the hornet is like Samuel Jackson. The fucking thing ate the hornet! They ate me! A fucking shark ate me!
This weeks winner or winners I should say is the US Women’s Hockey team who took home gold for the first time in women’s USA hockey history. If any of you ladies are on the corner of 17th and Wharton Jeff Cold Beer will have your award. Congratulations!
