Minimum wage, for the win

This David Pollack observation about his college defensive coordinator gave me a chuckle:

“He does a good job of finding out how guys respond and knowing which buttons he can push,” said David Pollack, a three-time All-America linebacker under VanGorder. “He’s not going to call you out just to call you out if it’s not going to get the effect. He always used to tell Odell Thurman, because he came from a background where football was going to be his ticket for sure, you’re going to work at McDonald’s or own the McDonald’s. He always had the same energy. You knew what you were getting from him every single day, and you didn’t want to disappoint him.”  [Emphasis added.]

It’s not exactly a pumping gas moment, but it’s from the same family tree.

    “Thurman signed with the Florida Tuskers of the United Football League. In 2011, the team relocated to Virginia Beach, Virginia and became the Virginia Destroyers.”
