Andrew Luck still plays Snake...
 
Quote:

It’s official—Andrew Luck has a burner.

After being brought on by the Indianapolis Colts as a backup for Andrew Luck, former Seahawks star Matt Hasselbeck tweeted out one of the star quarterback’s best-kept secrets—his cell phone


----------

In a day and age where people are becoming more and more dependent on their smart phones, it would appear Luck is taking the simple route—rocking a simple Samsung flip phone.

Whereas most young people spend time worrying whether or not their Wifi is “organic” and “Kindle-ing” their significant others, the Colts superstar is kicking it old school.

Is it a lame move on Luck’s part? Complete indifference? Or is it genius?

Local kid, smart enough to get an architecture degree at Stanford, great ball player, down to earth ....

Would have been OK with the Texans trading away half their draft and Matt Schaub to get him. But since he plays for the Colts, I hate him. The same way I hated Peyton Manning, or the Steelers when I was a kid. They're great, and I'm jealous.

Also, what is iiwii?

Man...

That's pretty cool about the phone. Dude comes across as a real down-to-earth kinda' guy, which makes it that much harder to dislike the dude.

But, like eriadoc, I cannot 'like' him because he's probably going to own this division in the not-too-distant future, just like Peyton.

So like the guy as a fellow human, but dislike him in a football uni for obvious extremely biased reasons.

I tell you what, I am (and have been for a long time) a Peyton Manning fan. I like watching the game & it's because of guys like Peyton who play at a high level year in & year out.

I rooted for Addai to become the first running back to rush for 1000 yards in a season never having started a game. I thought it was a cool thing & he's from Texas.

I always liked the Edge. I thought the Colts did him dirty, but... looks like they knew something Arizona wishes they knew.

I've got nothing but respect for Freeney, Mathis, Bathea, & that LB they had with the BigHead.

I have no problem liking players of different teams, including teams that have owned my team. Heck, I like the Colts & hope that our organization can be as successful (in "recent" times) & can be run as well for as long.

I'm not much for hating people, but when I do it's usually not for something as trivial as which team they play for.

Snake is a game that used to come standard on most of those old school phones like Luck has. It's a simple game. You can play it here: http://neave.com/snake/

And yeah I hear you on the Colts. I don't really dislike too many guys either...And although I do like Andrew Luck....I hope the Colts suck big donkey balls from now until oblivion...

I don't care if the Colts suck or not. I just hope that we're better. I'd rather the Colts get a wildcard than Baltimore or Pittsburgh, or the Jets......

The **** is organic WiFi?

Meh.... It's the new "baller lifestyle".

See stories about Alfred Morris who won't give up his "Bentley",


a 1991 Mazda 626.

Here's one story:

Alfred Morris won't give up his 'Bentley'

In all seriousness, I wish more professional athletes would adopt similar values. Granted they make a lot of money........ but for generally speaking very short periods of time.

Alfred Morris really is a class act. Very modest and humble. And really a guy that will not give up his humble beginnings due to the fact of him now being pretty wealthy!

Look at that back cover and how well it's stood up! Talk about taking/giving a beating. It's putting Nokia to shame.

That's nothing. I hear Thorn makes his girlfriends send him naughty pics of themselves on an etch a sketch.

How interesting.

What kind of cellphones do other NFL Quarterbacks use?

That's ****ed up.

I won't name call, but man that's seriously *ahem* whatever-I-could-say-that-wouldn't-be-name-calling.

You don't ever EVER say you'd rather a divisional rival get a playoff spot than another team in a different division.

EVER.

No no no!

No, it would be on one of those impression boards made out of thousands of little metal nails that make a 3-D relief of your hand.

So Thorn could feel 'em up!
