In my naivete I hoped, beyond hope, that they were better than the masses I live among. It just so happens they are the same as those that live in my community. And I should treat them likewise. Dude on my block gets accused of sexual assault twice, I’m sorry, no more BBQ invites. (Yeah, even accused, not convicted) The dude with the drug conviction? Same thing. DUI? I’m takin’ your keys. Assault on your girl? No invite and I will never respect you again. (I may even get a little physical with you myself). Also you can bet you're a$$ the child abuse arrest would have the HOA working overtime trying to figure out a way to get you to the curb. (And your safety during a nice warm evening walk would be a thing of the past.) Possession of pot? Your new nickname is Ricky. Attempting to bring an undeclared gun on a plane? Al. (for Al Quaeda). Voices on various sites say "What if that were your son or your daughter? How would you react?" Well they aren’t my children and IMO don’t deserve the same consideration my children would. (BTW I have both, Sons and a Daughter). So with that in mind keep the lectures. I love sports. I have played them my entire life. Family members, teamates and "our" team all need different types of support. I will continue to support the Steelers and all of their dysfunction for as long as they are in existence. Even though they now resemble a cousin that I haven't seen for years. I just may not be as optimistic and rosey eyed as I once was. The human condition is just that, Human. And I, my friends have succumed to being one. Faults and all. GO STEELERS! Screw the superstar.
