I must admit, cheating in sports doesn’t bother me;
To a point, it does bother me.
Not that I’m inclined to confuse professional athletes or any other celebrity for people of importance or letters. A lot of these people can be counted among the walking brain dead and they prove it every time they open their mouths.
The problem in this instance is that these clowns are frequantly presented as role models and some of them even appear to believe their own press. As far as I’m concerned, if these people are going to be presented as role models or worse, actually believe that they’re role models, then they need to be true to the image they present.
If they can’t manage that, then they need to just shut the **** up and play ball.
