    Stay humble brother. No one likes arrogance. These big juice heads will blow you up on purpose just to show you they are more arrogant than you are.

  3. James Hatcher says:

    😎 playing D ball would only be a dream 😎

  4. Justin Jurich says:

    Put a name on it instead of hiding behind a screen name. Try being an uplifting teammate/member of society rather than hating on somebody else for a change.
