First of all, I thought tonight about how we treat our athletes. We are all guilty of this, I am not taking blame away from myself. Haven’t we all been at a game, and we feel like we can say whatever we want, because we paid for our ticket? I know I have.

We have to remember that athletes are people too. We don’t think they hear the nasty comments, but they hear them. They are entertainers, but they are people. Any time we make a personal comment about an athlete, maybe we can take a minute to think about what we are saying.

Think about it in your own lives too. Again, I am guilty too, where we say something that we think is a joke to someone. Do you ever really know for sure that it is a joke? What we think is a joke, could be staying in that person’s mind forever, and could lead them down a path of depression. Think about all the kids that have committed suicide and been on the news. It all started with comments. We should all learn to treat each other better.
