> football players say the damndest shit in interviews when asked about another player its like. oh yes my teammate? he is my everything. my soul and my bone marrow the warmth of my stomach. the apple of my eye the orchard of oranges in the shade of which i want to retire. my arms are limber for him my bed is cold when hes gone i turn to him to celebrate and cry and he wipes my tears like theyre holy on his thumbs like they hurt him than im hurt spilling them. yes i do have a wife and four kids at home what do you mean
