I guess somebody DIDN’T watch ESPN’s 30 for 30: Broke. Well–it seems Tryon Smith’s family members didn’t. According to CBSSports.com and the Dallas Morning News reports that Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith has been harassed by members of his family who want a piece of Smith’s fortune.
It seems they showed up to his house asking “to hold” some of his approximately $12.5 million earnings.
According to the report:
“The Morning Newswrites that Smith gave his family “a substantial amount of money” after he signed that contract, but reportedly, some members want more. As the newspaper reports, Smith filed a protective order against his mother and stepfather during the summer to keep them from contacting him.”
How sad! You would think his success, which I hope his parents had a hand in would bring them together. The love of money is the root of all evil, and it’s truly sad to see it destroy the things that really matter.
I hope they can repair the relationship because the most important things in life aren’t things.

Are You Ready For Some Football?
That’s right, as hard as it is for some to believe (these “some” are mostly men…wanted to make sure I pointed that out) women are in love with the game of football. With over 45 million women watching NFL games each week, the NFL is the favorite among women. Now with anything there are those that are addicted when it comes to the sport of football. Let’s take me for example, I believe I am a man’s dream, I wake-up to the NFL Network, I go to bed to it, but most importantly I also know what I’m talking about, and I talk major shit about my favorite team or player. Then there are those of you who watch the games in passing. You know a couple of terms, you’re up on the basic knowledge, and you do know how to sit down and enjoy a good game. Then there are those of you have no idea what the hell is going on. You think that the’ man in motion’ is a term coined from the hit show Cops, referring to a criminal on the run, but you do take a small interest in the game for some reason or another. (more…)
