“I am doing a fundraiser this weekend as another opportunity to raise money to support Haiti. I thought it was a great idea to do it at Western Michigan being that it’s my alma mater. I got a lot of support. I just plan on going out there and having fun. Hopefully a lot of people will show.
“It starts out with a breakfast that I will be speaking at for about 10 minutes. I will introduce everybody to the field and let everybody know what’s going on with the crisis in Haiti and if they could support.
“We will follow that up with the spring game, of course. Then, after the spring game we’re going to have a barbecue. I will do the normal things I do every day: try to make people laugh and give them insight with what’s going on with the Lions so they can look forward to next year.
“I do have a big following at Western, starting off with my so-called dad, Bill Cubit, and all the rest of the coaching staff that’s been supporting me in my years there. I also have my cousins there. My one cousin and a couple of my high school teammates are there promoting it as much as they could. It’s going to be a fun week.
“Today is my birthday. I want to say I am a big birthday guy, but I’m not. Birthday is another day. I pray to God that I’m thankful just to live another year, but as far as birthdays – getting up and celebrating with a birthday cake … first of all, I hate cakes.
“Chocolate cake, vanilla – I hate all of it. I can’t stand cake to be honest with you. Pie either. Pie, candy, Snickers bar, nothing. Birthday cakes are overrated to me. Don’t get me wrong; I think everybody deserves a cake once in awhile. But, to me, it’s just another day. I’m just thankful to be here.”
