Orlando Brown: Life After Football

Congratulations to Orlando Brown.

You may remember Brown. He is a former NFL offensive lineman. When he was a member of the Cleveland Browns, he was viciously assaulted with a weapon by an official. The official used a loaded penalty flag to attempt to rob Brown of his eyesight, and his career.

Brown battled back. Fighting through the extensive rehab and psychological damage inflicted as a result of the attack. He even was picked up again years later by the Ravens.

Unfortunately, what seemed destined to be a long and successful career never panned out.

But, Brown has moved forward and is setting a prime example that life can begin after football. Even if that life after football is prematurely forced upon a player by a Caucasian referee with a 'weapon'.

Congratulations to Orlando Brown as his career as an entrepreneur kicks off with his opening of a Fatburger franchise in Columbia, MD. It is slated to open in August.

We wish him the greatest of success as he continues to attempt to recover his life from those that would have held him down.

as a raven fan, i was proud of the way brown came back, but he wasn't intentionally assaulted, the ref threw the penalty flag and it happened to hit brown's eye. it was a freak injury.

"it was a freak injury."

Sir, Indeed.

And we suppose that MLK, Jr. was the victim of a freak hunting accident?

To start with I would like to congratulate the cradores of this blog, mainly because when I read it I enjoyed it very much. A few years ago I attended a conference called guanacaste costa rica real estate, at that conference had many interesting topics. Perhaps readers may find no relationship between the blog and this conference, but if someday can attend, would realize that there is much to do with this blog.

ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF THE LIES SPREAD BY THE NATION OF ISLAM. IT WAS AN ACCIDENT, A FREAK ACCIDENT...HE WAS NOT HIT BY THE WHITE REFEREE BECAUSE HE WAS BLACK. HE JUST WAS IN THE WRONG PLACE AT THE WRONG TIME. MORE AND MORE OF THE WHITE BROTHERS ARE LOVING THEIR BLACK AND BROWN BROTHERS. GO WITH THE FLO. MAY ALLAH BLESS YOU AND JESUS AND YAHVEH....

It is quite shocking to here that kind of story. but at least he proved him wrong to keep up fighting and return at least some time to NFL. Something that it worst sharing at Host PPH community.
