Denver QB, Kyle Orton, known for his off the field drunken displays: online photos of him in his underwear drinking straight Jack Daniels, finally decided to put his drunken past behind him. Two weeks sober, a freshly shaven Kyle has no idea who he is or how he could possibly be a starting quarterback in the NFL.
Rudy Ruettiger, one of the most inspirational stories in all of sports about a blue collar kid who didn’t want to accept his fate in a local steel mill and instead worked his tail off to play for the Fighting Irish, is now back at the local steel mill. His motivational speaking gigs dried up at high schools around the country, as his story didn’t really connect with the younger generation. We interview young kids as they bring up valid points, “The guy played a couple downs in college? Big deal, he didn’t even go pro.”
