JASON JORDAN’S WHAT I’M THINKING TODAY …
OK people we’re about to transition over into a new year.
I know you’ve been debating long and hard about what your New Year’s resolutions should be.
Whatever you came up with just make sure it’s something that you can maintain.
Don’t go too lofty; the goal is to still be implementing said resolutions in the spring.
WHAT I CAN’T GET ENOUGH OF RIGHT NOW …
“Watching Spiderman.” – Lincoln (Brooklyn, N.Y.) shooting guard Isaiah Whitehead
