    Saw it posted on his facebook and wondering why he was there. If he has a bummed up hammy, why is he not resting?

    Who knows? Could be a photo shoot for one of the trading card companies (there are about a dozen)?

    Facebook & Twitter can actually give fans too much information. Why is Tate in LA? Why doesn't Tate have someone take out his trash? Why does Tate eat Capn Crunch? Doesn't he know that you can't get away with the Crunch, because the crunch always gives you away?

    Just too much.

    Just a guess, but it's probably this...

    I just asked that question myself, it was not a question on facebook. His page simply said he was in LA, not dealing with the time change, and I was just wondering why. THANKS Champion for answering my question. I am sure that is probably the reason.

    Go to his facebook to watch some videos he's made in LA too...

    My favorite is when he breaks down other rookie RBs and says why his rating on Madden should be better...can't say I disagree! He points out that he ran faster than Mathews and McCluster but their speed is higher than his.

    I did! He has a cool way of interacting with the fans. Pretty good videos of things he has done since his inception as a Texan. One of my favs is the one where he posted he would buy dessert for the first Texan fan to show up at his table. Five guys showed up and looked like they had won the lotto! The look on those guys faces was priceless! BT is a fun guy, hope he continues!

    Having a tough day? Haha.

    Agreed about twitter and facebook though. It's what I was trying to broach about twitter changing the face of reporting a while back. We the fans are now subject to the same crap reporters have to weed thru to find news. Twitter has replaced many reporters phone number on a player's speed dial.

    I like what I have seen from Ben Tate thus far and hope he retires as a Texan after a long HOF career.

    Cool videos on his facebook page. The funniest part is when he went up to Sam Bradford and yelled out "Big Money." Bradford just laughed it off , but you could tell that he was embarrased.

    Tate is becoming a fan favorite even before his first snap as a Texan. I absolutely love what he's done in order to endear himself to us so far. Of course, his performance is going to be what matters most, otherwise, it will all be for nothing. Having said that, by the efforts that he's made to date, it is abundantly clear that he wants to be here.....and he wants to do some great things. I can't recall another Texan that's immersed himself into our "persona" so quickly. I really hope that he's equally successful on the field, because if that's the case, we're all going to have a lot of fun times ahead.

    He should be rated WAY higher then a 72 ovr. He's faster then the 89 spd too.
