Lions

“You must be fixated on that or something, aren’t you?” Caldwell said, via the Detroit Free Press. “That must be of high importance to you. I don’t think about it as much as you do. Seriously. Why even talk about it? What sense does it make? You write what you want to write in that regard.

Patriots
