Ok kids, I have never asked people to repost or retweet anything before, but this time I am asking everyone who reads this to do just that.
Here we are just ten days into the new year. Everything is supposed to start over, everyone gets a clean slate to make this year better than the last. So why the hell are so many players doing so many stupid things? I mean seriously guys, there are about four thousand of you that read my stuff every Monday, and it seems like a bunch of you just don’t get the message.
So, since New Years Day, I have had no less than six reports emailed to me about players either using marijuana, cocaine, speed, or other drugs. I have had three reports of players getting involved with under age girls in one way or another.
Ummmmm yeah, can some of you maybe pull your heads out of your asses?!!!!
How many times do I have to write about all these idiots getting arrested for drugs, alcohol, and sex issues before you start to get it?!
Drugs do not get you where you want to go. Lets get it straight kids, drugs will lead you to jail, unemployment, or homelessness. That’s right. Read it again. There is no such thing as a druggie who becomes successful. There are plenty of stories of successful people who become drug users and lose everything though!
Drugs, will ruin your life. Get caught with too much pot, and you cant even go to college any more. Yep, no federal student aid for those dummies. No federal student loans either.
Oh, and how about those girls?
If you guys aren’t smart enough to ask a girl how old she is before you even begin a conversation, your just plain stupid. Saying “I didn’t know how old she was” or “She looked 18” isn’t gonna fly with the cops or the local prosecutor.
If all the news reports of players going to jail, and losing their careers in hockey aren’t enough to make you think for just a minute before you do something stupid then you deserve what happens to you.
Boozing it up is bad enough. But the drugs and girl issues will do nothing but end your career at the minimum. Every time you pick up a drug, or mess with a girl you don’t know the age of, you are playing Russian roulette. How many times do you think you can pull the trigger before the bullet goes through your head?
