Talking Benson: Lessons Learned in Vegas

This guy is a funny dude.

Here's are some of his highlights:

I was actually talking to him one time and he just cut off my sentence to bet me that I wouldn't go talk to a girl that walked by. Of course I said I would and I followed her for a few steps, only to see her walk over to Jamie Foxx and give him a big hug and kiss. I walked back over to Coach and told him that I, in fact, could not do it. Another one of my teammates said he didn't care who she was talking to, and went over to her. Alas, Jamie's security did care. I'll stop that right there.

While Joey Graham is still on my mind, I learned that one elbow from him can make you hurt so badly that you don't even notice when you sprain your MCL.
