Linda says she hopes her husband has slowed down, that he will take advantage of his second chance.
"Lawrence is so much more of a homebody this year," she says. "Last year, he'd come in after we were finished, take his food into the den and watch TV by himself. He thought all he had to do was pay the bills, that that was all he needed to contribute to the family.
"He had gotten out there. He was real wild.... He didn't realize his responsibilities at home. He thought he could drink and stay out with the boys.... He now knows he can't be in the streets all the time. Those extra two or three hours of sleep a night have helped him. He used to just give money away; he never got it back. I think he has finally learned to say no.
"He's happier than I've ever seen him. I couldn't imagine he'd want anything else. Except to win the Super Bowl."
