Future Bengal Gets Ready For The National Championship

LSU quarterback Joe Burrow is hours away from playing the biggest game of his collegiate career when he and the Tigers take on Clemson in the national championship game Monday night.

Burrow shed some light on at least one of his pregame rituals he has before kickoff, according to The Advocate. He told reporters that he takes a “nap” before games just to maintain focus.

“You do have to do that. Before every game I kind of close my eyes for the 15 minutes before we go out and just kind of take a nap a little bit just to calm myself down,” Burrow said, adding that it might not be considered a nap in its truest form because he doesn’t always fall asleep.

“I wouldn’t say I’m fully conscious. Yeah, I put the towel around my neck, close my eyes. Whatever happens happens. If I fall asleep, then I fall asleep.”

NBC Announces ‘Young Rock’ TV Series

NBC announced Dwayne Johnson will executive produce and star in ‘Young Rock’. The project has been given a straight-to-series order and will follow the school years of Dwayne Johnson and even his early wrestling career.

“We’re going to find Young Rock, for example, wreaking havoc in the streets of Hawaii when I was a very young teenager, getting arrested seemingly every single week, doing a lot of things I shouldn’t have been doing. Still a good kid. Then from there of course we were evicted off the island and forced to leave the island and move to of all places Nashville, TN where again I continued to get in trouble. Then we go into my high school years and then onto Young Rock as a University of Miami football star if you will until I got beat out of my position by a guy by the name of Warren Sapp who just happened to go on to become one of the greatest defensive tackles of all time.”
