11:44

right there out done we good we really

11:47

do this man you up next my boy yeah that

11:49

a nowhere to be found boy fat ass arm

11:52

damn that's a big ass needle that's what

11:54

went into my

11:57

[Β __Β ] that was smooth you've done that

11:59

before it's actually my first day no I'm

12:01

not buying that that went too smooth why

12:04

why I don't want to move my arm me

12:06

neither my has not mov since they put

12:08

the needle in and so there's not a

12:09

needle in there just like a little yeah

12:11

yeah yeah oh I'mma still not move it

12:13

though you feel me you know it's funny

12:16

cuz I feel like every time something

12:17

great happens something positive happens

12:19

in my life there always has to be a

12:20

little bit of drama that comes along

12:22

with it so apparently there was some

12:24

leak from inside the Brahma organization

12:27

of some fake stats of all the kicks we

12:29

did during practice and apparently they

12:31

saying that Matt dog walked me like it

12:34

wasn't even close it wasn't a

12:35

competition at all but I was still given

12:37

a job that it's not fair that because of

12:39

my platform I got handed this privilege

12:41

and I got handed this bias to become the

12:43

starting kicker and somehow someway some

12:46

dude on Twitter got the charting from

12:48

the whole camp we charted 17 kicks fam I

12:51

went 15 for 17 and dude went all over

12:53

Instagram talking about they handed

12:55

destroying the job he didn't earn the

12:57

job it's a publicity stun and he's like

12:59

oh I got a trusted Source within the

13:01

organization who gave me all the stats

13:04

bro look all I'm saying is I held for

13:06

every field goal you've seen every kick

13:08

go through I saw every kick just cat bro

13:10

and even though all that stuff is false

13:13

and fake you know it just fires me up

13:14

even more to show the world and prove to

13:16

these people that hey this was not just

13:17
