i’m really not here to kick a man while he’s down. nobody’s perfect. nobody’s righteous. my name is at the top of that list. were it not for the mercy of god, my life would have no hope.
but i’m just fed up tonight.
i realize there may be more to this story than is being reported, but the basics seem pretty clear. the other night, vince young, pro quarterback for the tennessee titans, got into a fight at a local dallas strip club last night. young was cited for class C assault, a misdemeanor that carries a maximum fine of $500. he even faces a possible ban from playing in the nfl, loss of major bucks and a blow to his rep. not a good night.
when they interviewed him today, he was contrite and offered these words: “i just made a mistake. i made a mistake even being there, and i let that guy provoke me into doing what i did.”
i know it’s never going to happen, but just once, i would love to hear someone say, “i’m an idiot. i didn’t just make a mistake…my life is totally out of whack. i need help.”
i can hope.
