The Chicago Bears drafted Payton within the first spherical of the 1975 NFL Draft, as the fourth overall decide. The Bears had endured several shedding seasons after the retirement of the Gale Sayers in 1972. Payton’s first recreation he did not have a terrific begin as he was held to zero net rushing yards on eight attempts.

In the top, the demons that manifested within them, ultimately devoured them. Gilliam would develop into homeless and pawned off his Super Bowl rings to fund his addictions.

During the Iranian election protests, the amount of tweets mentioning Iran peaked at 221,774 in one hour, from a move of between 10,000 and 50,000 an hour (Parr, 2009).
