Current Events

Reggie White seemed like a nice guy. Yeah, I was really bothered by his speech in front of the Wisconsin State Legislature, since it might be the most offensive speech anyone has delivered in my lifetime. But he apologized for it, and as I wouldn't want to be judged by my worst day, I will not judge him based on his. He did a lot of good stuff. R.I.P.

So, maybe it was because I watched football all day yesterday, but still, The Fiancee noticed something. She hadn't heard of Reggie White before yesterday. By the end of the day, she knew all of the minutiae of his life, but we had barely seen a glimmer of the 23,000 dead in Thailand. Then, today on MNF: more Reggie eulogizing.

That bugs me. But not enough to give up football.
