as good as I could make it! It’s hard getting old, your voice just won’t do the things it used to do. At least it did them in your mind. The ladies are meeting in a gorgeous setting on the Trinity River about a quarter mile from a wildlife refuge. It really is pretty and peaceful. I just never know if I’m actually making the impact in the crowd that I am in my mind. But, does it matter? 🙂
I wonder sometimes about the rhetoric and hatefulness of the political arguments that abound these days. It’s hard for me to understand the comments at times because what I think is harsh is deemed liberal by others. Or, what I think is liberal is deemed hate speech by others. Strange.
One of the good guys, David Carr of the Texans, was slapped down today. This guy is about as good a person as you are going to find in pro sports but at the end of the day, it is about wins/losses, fan perception and attendance. And the fact is, the wins weren’t there. Any reasonable observer of the sport will say that David wasn’t the sole reason the Texans lost so many games. Doesn’t matter.
Sports in general has lost (if it ever had?) any perspective on competition. There truly isn’t any such thing as a good sport in the eyes of fans, coaches and participants. There is only victory, nothing less. For all the good that team sports contribute to society, the absolute subordination of ethics, sportsmanship and character to winning negates it all. Is it any wonder that Ron Artest is still a sought after commodity?
Well, David, best of luck to you. I hope you find the O line that will give you more than 1.7 seconds to make a decision. I took this picture at the Jags game.
