WALT: Anyone want to start the bidding at 5 years, $100 million?
/puts Victor in headlock and starts punching him
Well, with the lame attempt at the haha out of the way, let me just say once again to the media:
Fuck you, you holier than thou pieces of dog shit.
I’m speaking of the Jeff Passans of the world here. Josh Hamilton did not commit any crime this week. He didn’t kill anyone like you’re required to do to join the NFL union. He didn’t fail any illegal drug tests. He wasn’t caught assaulting a nun on crutches. He didn’t pull a Sandusky on local Cub Scout Troop 53.
Josh Hamilton is guilty of one thing and one thing only. Being very fucking stupid.
He says he’s an addict. Cool. But why when you’ve made yourself the poster boy of recovering addicts why would you go into a bar in the one city you are guaranteed to be recognized in? Only Hamilton knows why he could be that dumb.
But for Passan or anyone else to use this as their chance to do judgmental moral bs columns makes me sick. Hamilton fucked up. It happens with addiction. I’ve been trying to quit smoking forever. I keep fucking up. It doesn’t make me a bad person. Sure, I am one, but it’s not because I can’t seem to quit smoking.
And Josh Hamilton isn’t a bad dude, either, from what I’ve seen. He just has a problem with booze. And he’s not too bright judging by where he chose to have a couple beers. He’s an adult, he did something dumb, today's gotcha media got word of it, and it’s probably going to cost him the long term contract he wants. That’s his business.
But please don’t judge him for his moment of weakness, Passans of the world. I think that ends up saying more about you than it does about Josh Hamilton.
