Barack Obama Vs. Robert Griffin III

These days, the “face” of Washington DC is a young upstart with sky- high expectations. But are we talking about Barack Obama or Robert Griffin III? Hell, even we don’t know. Things didn’t wrap up until 2 AM on Tuesday. We’re tired. Give us a break.

Remarkable Quote About Work

Winner “This moment right here, it's unbelievably believable. It's unbelievable because in the moment, we're all amazed when great things happen. It's believable because great things only happen with hard work.” – Heisman Trophy Acceptance Speech
January Plans
