The other day, Rashard Mendenhall of the Pittsburgh Steelers got into some trouble for some tweets of his. At first, many people thought, “Typical Athlete! Spoiled Brat!”

Here is his response:

I find it to be a well written (of not grammatically correct all the time) response, and I see his point. I was involved in a discussion with some friends yesterday, and we all sort of felt bad about our initial jubilant reaction. I can’t help but remember my disgust with the Arab world on 9/11. There were images on CNN of people dancing and singing, while we were all crying, and I am sure I wasn’t the only one who got so mad.

Good for Rashard for further elaborating. 140 characters or less doesn’t allow for much in the way of detail.

My first random entry (Just to get this ball a'rolling!)

Hello friendly reader! I just wanted to post a quick note to let you know I am going to update this periodically. However, I will warn you, I have a few interests that will take up most of this space. They include:

1. Baseball
2. Pro-Wrestling (guilty as charged!)
3.Other Sports
4. Occasionally matters of spirituality.

This blog is intended as a public forum for me to express my thoughts, in a format that allows more than 140 characters. I don't intend to argue, but a good debate is healthy. I tend to stay away from politics, but will occasionally wander into that realm. One thing: I can't stand people who spew hatred. That will not be tolerated.

Thanks for reading, and I hope we can learn form each other.
