Wisdom and encouragement from Ypsilanti’s mentoring barber goes mobile
YPSILANTI, MI - Ryan Griffin has been passing on wisdom and encouraging self-empowerment from his barber’s chair for more than five years. Now, the Ypsilanti-based barber is taking his haircuts and mentoring on the road. He’s shut down the brick-and-mortar location for Griff’s Unlimited Cutz and rebranded as Griff’s Mobile Barbering Service, bringing his barber kit to people’s homes for a $5 traveling fee. To make sure the kids earn their money, Griffin quizzes them on the message of what they’ve read. That’s very important, teaching them what they should be doing on their path to being a man.”Griffin’s influence can be felt throughout the Ypsilanti community, said The Fuller Cut Owner Alex Fuller.mlive.com

Brady continues group workouts despite NFLPA recommendation
With NFL training facilities still closed to players because of the COVID-19 pandemic, Brady has been leading small voluntary workouts near downtown Tampa for much of the past month. The latest session came just three days after the Bucs confirmed an unspecified number of individuals tested positive for COVID-19 at the team's training center. The same day, NFL Players Association medial director Dr. Thom Mayer, recommended all NFL players refrain from working out in group settings until training camp begins next month. It is our consensus medical opinion that in light of the increase in COVID-19 cases in certain states that no players should be engaged in practicing together in private workouts," Mayer said. The Bucs did not release the number or names of people who tested positive at the teams headquarters.
