Clinton Portis Does Not Give 110 Percent
There's been all this talk about how many pair of sneakers Clinton Portis owns. So I asked him. The answer: none, apparently.
"I just gave all of 'em away," he told me. "I'm reloading. I gave my whole closet away: sneakers, clothes, drawers, t-shirts and all. Just to re-up, so I can be different again."
Because it's been so long since C.P. has been different.
In other style news, B. Lloyd left the facility this morning wearing some sort of velvet-like boots, Chris Cooley left in a bright blue Hummer H3 and then reappeared this afternoon in a BMW, and the other day Cooley was wearing a hooded gray sweatsuit that read "Wyoming," which is a fine state I suppose. Oh, and Jon Jansen keeps wearing these t-shirts that say "Heavyweight Track Team" on the front, and "The ability to run you down and beat your [bleep]" on the back.
And in other Portis news, he was asked whether this year's camp requires greater effort, and his answer was typically brilliant.
"There's only so much you can do," he said, which is true. "If you feel like you gave 100 percent last year, you give 100 percent this year. You know, you can only give 100 percent. 110 percent, 120 percent? You can't jump off the top of the building, roll around and make a tackle. You've still got to stand on the field. If you fall on the ground, get up, make the tackle. That's all you can do. And I think that's everybody's mindset. If everybody gives 100 percent, we'll be ok."
