5-16-13, 9:30 p.m. When it comes to Bengals rookie linebacker Brandon Joiner, this isn't a reprieve from the governor. It is, simply, a reminder by the honorable Mike Beebe, the 45th governor of Arkansas, just how important is the story of his fellow Arkansas State alum. "He's a good guy. This is the kind of story you like to talk about," Beebe says, recalling the crucifix Joiner made for him out of braided leather that Christmas that Joiner spent in jail before leading ASU into a bowl game. Joiner may have paid his dues, but the polls are about to open.
