Long Time, No Talk

I know it's been a while since I've posted a blog.  In fact, it's been over a month.  Over that time, I visited my family in South Carolina.  I can honestly say that I needed those two weeks like a linebacker needs a tracking device on his girlfriend.  You really didn't think I would overlook that story, did you?  I'll address that in a minute.

I first want to ask a question about this whole gun control debate.  Is it really wrong to want accountability from the people who buy and sell guns?  A lot of the mass shootings have been perpetrated by those who legally obtained their guns.  Yes, I'm aware that those who may not be eligible to own a firearm will find a way to get it anyway.  However, at the very least, let's attempt to figure out this epidemic.  I don't think a little more responsibility is too much to ask.

I'm sure some of you have heard this crazy story about the linebacker at Notre Dame who had a girlfriend die the same time frame he lost his grandmother.  Now on first listen, it's the worst story in the world.  To lose important people in your life is terrible.  However the twist is that this girlfriend never existed.  Like a complete fake.  The problem is whether or not this linebacker knew about it or was in on the faking.  Best case scenario is this kid is biggest doofus ever.  The worst case scenario is that this kid played with an entire country's emotions.  I've almost been the victim of that same thing.

A while back, about 6 years ago maybe, I met a lady online.  Nice lady, real pretty picture.  We talked on the phone, in chats, everywhere.  It was great, honestly.  However whenever it was a good chance to meet up, something would inexplicably go wrong for her.  I was pretty proactive.  I decided that I would go to her.  Drove to Philadelphia and found out where she was.  She conveniently drove away and her "cousin" met up with me.  Said cousin was the person doing all this. To put it nicely, said cousin did not look anything like the girl in the picture.  She looked like she ate the girl in the picture.  That is terrible, I'm sorry.  However, I'm not sorry about the experience.  If you're thinking that someone online is fake, research.  Figure it out immediately.

Alright, so my Packers went down this year.  I'll live.  My team doesn't stink, so I'm already happy about next year.

This Lance Armstrong thing is pretty cut and dry, honestly.  He cheated, which is the least of his sins.  The fact that he tried to ruin people who told the truth about him is incomprehensible.  He sued, he attacked, he lied, and he just flat out destroyed whoever got in his way.  Ruthlessness has become standard in everything that goes on.  It's all because of sin.  People are imperfect and will do anything to make themselves better.  The problem is being better is better if you do the right thing as opposed to doing the self-serving thing.  One day, people will get that.

Well, this was a fun time.  I'll probably post something again next week and try my best to stay consistent.  I missed this thing.
