A Friday Distraction Featuring Derrick Thomas


There are 69 days until the 2014 NFL season begins. You can watch the countdown in real time, if you’d like. I know you all are just as anxious as I am to see how this year’s Chiefs team shapes up.

Maybe it’s too much caffeine, or maybe because it’s Friday, but I just can’t seem to focus on work today. I thought you might be feeling the same way, so I present to you a distraction:

Red Tribe Cinema’s 8:30 minutes of Derrick Thomas tackling, slapping and harassing terrified quarterbacks, AKA Dee Ford’s study material.

I especially like the clip at 4:45 — that little shove of John Elway, who then comically topples over. Bonus giggle: those hideous Gatorade-orange Donkey uniforms.


Addicts, what’s your favorite Derrick Thomas memory?
