    Way to go, Jamil, giving up his number. He's a team player all the way. :)

    Yes indeed. That was a class thing to do.

    I have a question, though. Since he's Brazilian, is it all right for him to have two names? Shouldn't his name (and, of course, the inscription on the back of his jersey) be something like Rofia, Faridinho, or even just Rodrigo? Inquiring minds must know. ;)

    Nice article. Clearly his dad's death has seriously affected him. It'll definitely take him a while to get anywhere near 100%, both physically and mentally.

    Hopefully by choosing "lucky number 13", Walker will still continue his good form. Thumbs up to the rook for sacrificing his number to the grieving veteran.

    That was a really well-written article and you could tell Rodrigo meant everything he said in it. Hopefully when he comes to SJ he will be able to make his dad proud.

    Also, props to Jamil for giving up his number. That was a really nice thing for him to do, and I'm sure Faria appreciated it a lot.

    True. Very nice article. I hope the SJ crowd *really* gives Faria a big welcome when he is first introduced. I know I plan to. Sounds like he wrestled with the decision to come back. We have to let him know he made the right choice.

    Speaking of right choices...WAY TO GO, JAMIL!!! Pure class. As for #13 and continued good form--that number is serving Mathis pretty well.
