For those of you who may be new to this blog, I have nicknamed the way that our new stellar defensive end Julius Peppers trains. I call it the Julius Peppers Training System ™ or JPTS ™. It works like this:
- Sucker a NFL team that is full of dumb coaches, has an inept gm and ownership group. Have them sign you to a whopping guaranteed contract based fully on past performance.
- Go out almost every night to clubs until all hours instead of spending time getting good sleep and waking up the next day training for the upcoming season.
- Flop massively the following season/get tossed in jail/both.
I have blogged extensively on these pages about the antics of Julius and I simply cannot believe what I am reading and hearing. Now today I find this tweet from Tao night club in Vegas. That is from March 25th. That’s right, Julius has taken the JPTS on the road to sin city. Perfect.
On March 26th, we have this from the Tao blog, which seems to confirm the fact that Julius was there the night of the 25th. It seems that Julius has essentially blown off his first full month with the Bears partying.
This situation is so fucked I don’t even know where to begin. The Bears, at this point, would literally be MILES ahead hiring ME to be their star defensive end. If I were guranteed that type of jack with the possibility of making MORE in the years ahead, I would certainly go out once a week (maybe not, now that I think about it) BUT the rest of the week I would be working my ASS off training and getting good sleep, instead of spending the majority of my nights in a club, breathing smoky, stale air (Vegas) and waking up with a giant hangover at 3pm.
As a matter of fact, I would like to issue Julius Peppers a challenge to work out with me. We will do all exercises like pushups, situps, etc. that aren’t weight related – just resistance. I have a feeling I would kick his ass. And certainly I would in cardio things like running and biking.
WAY TO GO BEARS! Way to hire a drunk lazy fuck and get rid of everyone else. Hey Bears, if you hire me, at least I will give it my all. I might get crushed every play by a steroid pounding dude on the other side of the line, but I would give it my best. Dammit this is all so…FUCKED!!!
