Today on Twitter, Josh Doctson posted this vague tweet that was left up for interpretation…or maybe it was quite clear.
There’s a lot of things that can be 100%…one of them is not this laptop i’m typing on, that’s at 42%…apparently in honor of Jackie Robinson.
100% could be how he’s “keeping’ it!” that’s what the kids say.
100% could be how much effort he gives each time out, although some like to give 110% or 120%.
100% could be the score on his driving test, that’s a good grade.
100% could also be how his health is rated in relation to his aching achilles, which is most likely the reason for the very general tweet. If that’s the case, this is great news for the Redskins and the guy that drafted him…the guy that was fired a couple weeks ago. This, of course is assuming he continues to stay healthy and is at 100%.
I find it hard to believe that a football player every really gets to 100% healthy. With all the hitting and overzealous physical contact from large, fast moving objects from opposing directions…how can you ever be at a full 100%. 100 percent is technically perfect, can’t really do better. Even the foolish coaches that tell you to give 110% or 120%. If you give your all, isn’t that a full 100? Maybe i’m just a slacker or too cynical for wordplay with number…but…nevermind.
So, today marks the 17th anniversary of one of my all time favorite albums. Hands down favorite album by one of my favorite artists, Common (Sense as he was named when i first heard him). Like Water for Chocolate was a phenomenal album that came out at a time when hip-hop was getting back to more positive rhymes and storytelling…not to mention the music produced by the late great J-Dilla. Here’s my favorite track from that album…if you like this one, the rest of the album will be a great listen for you if you haven’t yet heard. Common definitely gave it a 120% effort on this one.
