Default Emphasis on 'REEK'

I just read a very interesting online ESPN article on Chiefs return specialist Tyreek Hill.

I recommend everyone read it.

One line that will stick with me as a very heavy truth is:

In the NFL, talent is currency; it buys tolerance and, in some cases, immunity.

- leading to part of another, more familiar quote, the entirety and original source of which I cannot recall:

' what price glory?'

"A life is not important except in the impact it has on others lives" - Jackie Robinson

“If you have a chance to make life better for others and fail to do so, you are wasting your time on this earth.”- Roberto Clemente

Dunno about the quote but it's a James Cagney movie.
My avatar is a sketch by my son who is an art school graduate. Some of his sketches and paintings are at

He is available to do custom drawings in graphite, charcoal and other media. He also sells some of his works as note cards/greeting cards on Etsy under JamesSpaethArt.

Oddly enough, the thing that caught my attention was the quote from Mike Gundy.....

"We try to stress as much as we can to these guys, there's just certain things right now that society frowns upon," he told reporters.

What in the holy hell?? Society frowns upon? Right now? about "these kinds of actions are WRONG"?

With that said, I went back and read the original article and quote. Gundy did the right thing and that, ultimately is the most important part of his responsibility. At a minimum, he colossally flubbed that statement. If it truly represents how he is (was) leading his players; then he is doing them, society, his program and himself no favors. Im hoping its just the former.
