I think I’m the last person on my neighborhood to know that Doug Free, starting offensive tackle for the Dallas Cowboys, lives across the street from me. I mean, I’ve seen and talked to him, but never put together who he was. He’s actually a pretty down to earth kind of guy, he drives an old dually and has roommates.

Those Walking Dead/Mad Men commercials are pretty funny.
