Remember last year when Ronnie Brown blew up his knee trying to tackle a Patriot DB who just intercepted a pass? And we were all like, "Oh man, Ronnie got dinged up," and then three minutes later we were all like, "Oh shit. Not good." and then we were all like, "Why us?" and then we were all like, "God hates us! God fucking hates us!"
Well, less than a year later it looks like the universal colossus that is Ronnie Brown, the man we here at FN affectionately call Black Thunder (t-shirts coming soon!), is on his way back sooner than expected:
Less than eight months after sustaining a season-ending knee injury, Dolphins running back Ronnie Brown took part in 11-on-11 team drills for the first time this week, a sign that points to a full return by next month's training camp. "It's a big step,'' said Brown after Thursday's practice, the final organized team activity session until the start of training camp in late July. "A step closer to getting ready for the season and getting ready for training camp.
11-on-11 drills, taking contact, and being a part of the first-team. Badassery at its finest, my friends. Most torn ACLs take over a year to fully heal. But Ronnie Brown is no ordinary man. He's Black Thunder, bitch (t-shirts coming soon!) and, well, quite frankly, he and Ricky Williams are really the only hope we have of not completely shitting the bed this coming season.
Ronnie is not fully healed, mind you. But this is a huge step forward. This means he could quite possibly be ready to jump into the fray when the season starts. First victim of the Black Thunder Rolling Rally of Ass Kicking & Cockpunches: the New York Jets.
And he's gonna run all over their asses, blow right through their DBs and LBs like a cannon ball, rip off their helmets with their heads still in them and FedEx them to Bob Sutton's home, take a dump in Eric Mangini's mouth, rip off Calvin Pace's arm and beat Vernon Gholston to death with it, and go up into the stands and shove Fireman Ed's hat so far up his ass, they'll need the jaws of life to go in and pry it out.
Because he's Black Thunder!
And he just don't give a fuck!
