How Powerful is Satan?

(This is a picture of Zack Follett) Earlier this week the media bombarded Zack Follett, a linebacker for the Detroit Lions, for some comments he made towards the Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford.  Basically, Follett chose his words very poorly and the media used it against him.  Instead of letting things blow over or owning up…

Aye-Aye
