Your comment "Find something to be excited about every day" when you wake up now greets me at the computer where I start my day. Thank you for sharing.

This video does help me want to put some things into perspective, look at some different things I could be doing with my life right now. I'll echo others when I say this: this was something I think I needed, especially with how goofy 2020 has been.

  • Find you a woman as thick as Takeo's neck.😂 Joking aside, I always liked Takeo. A really good player that I always wished would have at least made the playoffs at least one time in his career. It would be cool it if he makes the HOF one day.

  • Takeo! Love this guy! Arguably the best linebacker for the Bengals while he was there, which he was playing on a terrible Bengals as a team. I rooted for him even after he left Cincy because he's such a successful presence and an all-around beast on the field physically and mentally. Definitely a mentor for young athletes. Great interview and video!
