    ...and of course, I buy into his reasoning, hook, line and sinker!!! Here's a few highlights and then the link below! Let's discuss!!!

    "San Francisco’s Colin Kaepernick is going to be a big-time NFL quarterback. That must make the guys in San Quentin happy.

    Approximately 98.7 percent of the inmates at California’s state prison have tattoos. I don’t know that as fact, but I’ve watched enough “Lockup” to know it’s close to accurate.

    I’m also pretty sure less than 1.3 percent of NFL quarterbacks have tattoos. There’s a reason for that.

    NFL quarterback is the ultimate position of influence and responsibility. He is the CEO of a high-profile organization, and you don’t want your CEO to look like he just got paroled."

    "Forgive me, but I suffer from tattoo-ism. I sport no ink, and I don’t want any. I still cringe when I go to the gym and see middle-aged women with barbed wire circling their biceps. They have bigger arms than I, so I never make fun. But I can’t shake the notion that a person’s body is a temple, and you don’t cover temples in graffiti."

    ....I'm glad the dawg man is always thinking about me! I'm just waiting for this story to break nationwide! Can't figure out why ESPN, Fox Sports and others haven't made this issue explode before our very eyes! And when it happens....I'll have more to contribute!

    ......EQUALLY pathetic? Tattoo's on Caucasians, maybe even worse! Has nothing to do with race, bubba!
