I can't fathom how Brian Banks is not full of bitterness and hate. I know that I couldn't go through something like he did without coming out much, much worse.

If you have a chance, listen to the Rich Eisen podcast from a couple of weeks ago where they had him as a guest. They interviewed him for an hour and he came across incredibly well. It's not just soundbites - the guy really has accepted everything that happened to him, forgiven and is moving on with his life in a positive way.

An unbelievable example - I will definitely be rooting for him to make the Falcons roster (or someone else's).
