Rice Story and Short Suspension Still Upsetting, Baseball Hall Of Fame Ceremony

FOOTBALL

Ray RiceThe Ray Rice story is making people angry. The video of Ray dragging his girlfriend out of the elevator has gone viral and is really upsetting.  In addition to how upsetting it is to see the footage, it’s shocking that  the Commissioner of the NFL, Roger Goodell, only suspended him for 2 games for violating the NFL personal conduct policy. Fans are outraged that this horrendous behavior didn’t have more of a penalty.

BASEBALL

Frank ThomasFrank Thomas, Greg Maddux and Tom Glavine along with managers Bobby Cox, Tony LaRussa and Joe Torre were inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame on Sunday. It was an emotional day for all particularly Frank Thomas who choked back tears. His message was clear and an indirect message to kids to resist the temptation of steroids:

“To all you kids out there, just remember one thing from today,” he said. “There’s no shortcuts to success. Hard work. Dedication. Commitment. Stay true to who you are.”
