|Career NFL statistics|
I tend to watch a little TV... Court TV, once in a while. Some of the cases I get interested in.
The day you take complete responsibility for yourself, the day you stop making any excuses, that's the day you start to the top.
Nicole will come up in conversations where it's in a part of the conversation. Or we may be somewhere and I would tell some story about their mother and I. You know, we always honor her birthday.
I'm enjoying the money, the big house, the cars; what ghetto kid wouldn't?
I don't know how often I can discuss one incident in my entire life, but I'll continue to do that.
I could not tell you the date of my mother's death. I could not tell you the date of my dad's death. These are not dates that I find significant.
What do you mean you have my children at the police station? Why are my kids at the police station?
I had one fight in my adult life. I had the famous '89 fight with Nicole, which she admits that she initiated the physical part.
My NFL pension can barely pay my son's tuition. You know, it's very little money.
