I take it that it isn't 'Grape Nehi.'

Codeine/promethazine cough syrup mixed in with some sprite according to the Urban Dictionary.

Popular in the hip hop community. DUH.

The whole "Thailand?" thing got a bit old. I propose a new bit of local lingo:

"Purple drank?"

Everybody's saying it these days!

He has plenty of ca$h..however, California is one of a handful of states ( I believe it’s 9) that doesn’t allow lenders to seek recourse against other assets after a foreclosure, if there is still a deficiency. I figure that he bought at the top of the market..probably put nothing down...because he got the loan based upon his expected NFL signing bonus..now it’s 30-40% underwater (around a million $$)..so he’s doing the smart thing in walking away..

But in true Al Davis fashion, the team is trying to recuperate some of that signing bonus.

Recuperate? Is it sick?

I’ve read that 78% of all NFL players are broke two years after they get out of the league. Way to go Jamarcus, you’ve gone through a guaranteed $30 million already.

JaMarcus Russell's return to greatness isn't going as well as planned...

Who?

I don't know what guide stick is being applied here, to say he wishes a "return to greatness".

That would imply some greatness, in the first place.

The problem with Russell, is the fact that his ability at the collegiate level just didn't transfer to the professional level, in spite of being babied and pampered by Lane Kiffin.

When Tom Cable wouldn't kiss his ass, he went to hell, getting fat, lazy and stupid.

Rumor has it that Russell is close to 300 lbs.

Not exactly your ideal QB weight at the pro level.

Maybe that Purple Drank has more calories than he figured.

I mixed up some jungle juice many years ago - everclear, grape juice, orange juice, etc.

Worst hangover I ever did have!

Thanks.

I guess every culture has slightly different names for things. For instance, in MY culture we call that stuff “cough medicine with codeine”.

I know — pretty weird, right? But that's just the way we roll where I come from...
