Entries on this blotter, I mean list, are obvious to most sports fans.
Instead of reciting names of the accused, I’ll just focus on the knuckleheaded behavior that earned these athletes a spot, or should I say time, in a chapter all their own in my comic book Worst About Sports.
My collection of pa-role models includes wayward athletes of all races, sizes and sports.
Pa-role models are athletes who should be locked up rather than paid millions to run, block, skate, pass, hit, or shoot – a ball, that is.
They’re the reckless renegades who endanger the lives of others with guns, alcohol, drugs and other rebellious endeavors.
They’re the hormone charged guys who sneak far too many past the goalie in far too many NFL, NBA and MLB cities. They don’t understand that any male can father a child, but raising a child takes a real man.
Totally dedicated on the field, these athletes lose all personal discipline when they leave it.
They’re the louts, cheats, drinkers, druggies and batterers. They believe their athletic prowess gives them immunity from the laws that bind those not as fortunate to be paid to play professionally.
Pursuing their errant ways, these jailhouse jocks give their fellow law abiding athletes black eyes and cause their loyal sports fans to see red.
Idolized for far too long, these famous, yet foolish felons need to be locked up.
Instead of serving as role models in arenas and stadiums, they should be serving time behind bars.
Lock ‘em up and throw away the key until these pa-role models understand and appreciate the burden, unwanted or not, of being a role model in sports. Case closed. That’s why pa-role models warrant (lol) a spot in Worst About Sports.
