As you can tell from the title, today’s post is a 2-for-1. I couldn’t let either story pass by, so why not talk about them both, right? Now in case you missed it, since my last post, the Miami Heat won the NBA championship and former Penn State assitant coach Jerry Sandusky was found guilty of child molestation. It was a huge 4 days in sports, so let’s just get down with the getdown.
First, I’d like to congratulate the Heat. Anybody who reads this site knows I frequently give them grief. I thoroughly enjoy basking in the failure of LeBron James, but at this time, I have to give credit where credit is due. While I’ve never been in doubt of LeBron’s absurd talent as a basketball player, I always felt he came up short in tough situations. If anybody wants to disagree with me, just look at his Finals performance last year against the Dallas Mavericks and shut up. However, I can’t hold him in the same light anymore. He completely dominated the Oklahoma City Thunder and definitely deserved the Finals MVP award. I previously said if he won a title, I would stop hating. With that being said, I’m a man of my word.
Second, Jerry Sandusky is a despicable human being. I don’t think any of us knew just how disgusting he was before the trial started. As time went on and new evidence was presented, I knew we were truly looking at a monster. I mean c’mon son, even his stepson was subjected to this treatment? His stepson?!? This man had no fucking boundaries or scruples son. Now, after being found guilty of 45 of the 48 counts, I hope the judge gives him all 442 of the years he could possibly spend in prison. Sandusky should never be allowed to breathe a free breath for the rest of his natural life.
That about sums it up. Here you have 2 opposite ends of the spectrum: a team winning a ring and a subhuman taking a fall. I don’t know what I’m going to do until basketball starts again, but I do know I can sleep better now that Sandusky is behind bars. Now, let me get some work done… sike.
