Idiots vs Heroes

Overshadowing Tiger pitcher Max Scherzer's 14th victory was the announcement that Ryan Braun has been suspended for the rest of this season. 

Mad Max scatters 4 hits and leads the majors in victories, but all the buzz will be about a lyin' cheat who used PED's. 

Yankee manager Joe Girardi had a great statement, "Everyone should do things the right way, but that’s not the world we live in. You get tired of talking about it. There’s a lot of guys that are doing it the right way and I respect those guys.”

Hey Ryan, seems like you might have a credibility problem now.

We love to dwell over every detail on our heroes fall from grace, but after a while doesn't it get old?  Journalists love these kind of stories, the kind that just fall in their lap.   No work, just watch the story like a movie and paraphrase the character as he falls victim to his own deceit. 

Maybe it won't get enough views, but how about a story that has an upbeat theme? 
I dunno, just an idea....
Duck Commander, Phil Robertson (former Louisiana Tech QB) likes the idea!


Here's one, how many Duck football players have been in trouble with the law this summer?   NONE (well, that I know of).  They got a slap on the wrist from the NCAA and kept their noses clean all the way through June!   Yikes, I hope I didn't just jinx them.
