FOOD CITY 500 ODDS

As a kid, I loved Mike Singletary. A linebacker for the Chicago Bears, the Hall of Famer had a stare that made men wet themselves. Singletary also hit harder than Carl Edwards when he sees anything that rhymes with Keselowski.Singletary currently coaches the San Francisco 49’ers, where he had one of the greatest coaching rants of all time in his very first game on the job.
