Hillis Towing Inc...

Postby Venom » Mon Jun 27, 2011 8:16 am

From NFL.com:

The Cleveland Browns' rugged running back has been busy enhancing his skill set during the NFL lockout, training in his own distinct way in his hometown of Conway, Ark. Hillis has been seen around the neighborhood powering down the street with a half-ton truck harnessed to his chest. On lighter days, he drags a small car or all-terrain vehicle.

I guess he took the workload problems to heart and is trying to toughen up? Wow. 8-o Looks like the avalanche managed to capture a few more victims.

That's pretty cool, would be funny to see it in action "oh ya, just pullin this truck.. no big deal really". I'm still avoiding him at all costs, he's on the cover of Madden.

Anybody look to the right and see the Article "Little parking issue: Browns rookie ticketed 93 times at UNC" :-b

He's a beast....loved watching him run through people.

I am also staying away unless its great value, not so much for the Madden curse but because as a Browns fan I am used to our team taking steps backward after a decent showing.

But I do have my fingers crossed ;-D

it says he's powering DOWN the street. If it's downhill, wouldn't it just be a matter of being faster than the truck? I view this as a way to build speed, not strength.

Or maybe he wants a new nickname. The Big Tow? Sergeant Hillka?

He is definitely working on strength and endurance. Or the nickname.

I think they might just be saying "down the street", could be a flat street - I know people say that all the time around here without it actually being downhill.
