The mayor of Shreveport TORE his quad and will need surgery

For those of you who don't know what a quad is, it's your outer thigh muscle. He tore it falling down at an elementary school.

Cedric is a long time friend who I always advised to lose weight. He's about 6-4, 400.

It's really no surprise. He's the biggest person I've ever shaken hands with. FWIW, I think he's a nice enough guy.

Did he ever graduate college? Someone told me he did not.

Maybe this will be a good wake up call for him.

Never heard of someone who broke a muscle.. A tear.. yes.. a break no.

I emailed him a few months ago when I saw how out of breath he was in a local TV interview. I said "Cedric, I'm retired now. I've got time. Let's meet at WK fitness center and just walk on the treadmill and talk philosophy like we did in the old days."
He never responded. I think he's given up. Or maybe this surgery will be a 'wake up call.'

No, but his story is interesting. He went to Green Oaks HS in the MLK area as a freshman. He was a defensive tackle. His older brother played for SMU and advised Cedric that pro football was a fool's goal and he should concentrate on academics.

Cedric transferred to Caddo Magnet HS as a Soph. He then tried LSU BR but left after a year. Then tried Grambling for a year, closer to home, but left to re-enter politics.

When he ran for Mayor against a lawyer (can't remember the opponent's name) Cedric just destroyed him. He doesn't have a degree but his critical thinking skills are amazing.

Magnet Debate!

He is a young man. He needs to lose weight.

That's not a trivial injury. When I tore mine, it was six months before I could get around pretty well, and another year before it was completely right.

Not saying it's trivial. Saying it's weird doing it by just falling down while you are walking. How did you tear yours? If you just fell down walking, you're a spaz.

I don't agree with him all the time, but Ced is one sharp cat.

Doing squats. The weird thing was, it hurt a little at the time, but didn't seem like a big deal. Then 3-4 days later, I couldn't walk.I guess the swelling held everything together at first.

And I assume you don't weigh 400+ pounds.
