Saturday Sounds of Summer.

It’s been a while since I posted a music related blog on this site but it’s about time for a Summer Edition of A-Train Listens, this is what’s been pumping through the headphones of late.

In today’s NFL, what does it mean to be a contender?

I just read an article on CBS Sports that said: “Dez Bryant reportedly only interested in signing with a contender next season.” The headline alone got me wondering: “How the fuck does Dez Bryant know who the contenders are?” Think about last season, and who was considered a contender in the preseason.
