Vikings QB Kirk Cousins Reminds Himself Of His Mortality In A Specific Way
Thursday, July 19, 2018 2:19 PM America
Pro Bowl quarterback Kirk Cousins is set to play in his first season with the Minnesota Vikings after inking a three-year, $84 million deal with the team earlier this offseason.He has compiled more money than he could ever spend in his lifetime, he can commence the process of counting down the remaining time in his life.
Knowing that his days are numbered (as are all of ours), the new quarterback of the Minnesota Vikings counts down the remains of his life using stones in a glass jar that he keeps outside his home in the southern suburbs of the Twin Cities.Cousins took to Instagram to explain that he has a tower filled with 720 stones, and that he’ll remove one per month.
"This now sits on my front porch. 720 stones. If I live to be 90, there’s 1 for every month left," Cousins said in his Instagram post. "I’ll take 1 out as each month passes. Great reminder for me to live a life of meaning and impact!"
This is certainly a different way for him to look at his life with some special meaning as each rock he takes out will signify to him getting older while moving closer to emptying out of the tube that should hold up if he reaches 90 years old.Kirk Cousins Jersey .
The gesture comes as Cousins closes in on the one-month countdown to his 30th birthday, so his 720 stones (60 years worth) will get him to exactly 90 years old.
Although it’s morbid on one hand, there’s an aspirational quality to it. He wants to make the kind of impact in his life that will cause him to be remembered when he’s gone. His new team surely hopes that will happen, in one very specific and trophy-shaped way.

Three months ago, a hundred days after the oath, one afternoon after school, the
school radio came Hackberry song: "When you are still still fantasy / your
tomorrow, it will be okay or worse for me, Another day / I have ruined my

want to struggle can not extricate themselves / I used to like you like him like
wildflowers / desperate desire, cry also laugh Ordinary with ... ... "I walked

in the lake like a dark faint black hero, crying I quietly back to the classroom

Some people criticized the contemporary Chinese education, saying that the
education of genius, and the so-called genius education results most of the
people is not an ordinary qualification to become a genius, but he twisted into
