Double Standard

Tragedy struck the NFL again this weekend, as a Dallas Cowboys player evidently was driving drunk and crashed, killing his passenger - a friend and teammate.
Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent has been arrested and charged with intoxication manslaughter stemming from a late night crash that resulted in the death of a teammate.

CBS Station KTVT reports that Jerry Brown Jr., a 25-year old currently on the Cowboys' practice roster, was killed in the accident.

Irving police spokesman John Argumaniz said the accident happened about 2:20 a.m. Saturday in the Dallas suburb, hours before Brent was to be on a team flight to Cincinnati for the Cowboys' game Sunday against the Bengals.
Bob Costas, in a halftime editorial statement, strongly deplored society's drink-and-drive culture and called for more stringent automobile control laws.

Oh, wait...

Ha ha! Stupid Bob Costas, so close to retirement. Had to open his mouth and ruin his rep. Glad to see him for what he is.

I always thought Costas was one of the better sportscasters out there. But then he, like many others in the entertainment field, made the mistake of thinking that just because they could talk/act/sing well, they were qualified to comment on social and political issues.

Like the old saying goes, "It's better to keep quiet and be thought a fool than open your mouth and remove all doubt."
