Coming Around to Terry Bradshaw

Posted by Greg on Apr 13, 2010 in Op-Ed |

Saw this article about the Big Ben fiasco and decided to chime in.

For starters, I’m not the biggest Terry Bradshaw fan. Sure the guy is comical cause he pokes fun at himself (in movies and on TV) and often makes reference to his lack in intelligence, but nothing about him is entirely endearing. He almost comes across as a caricature of himself and more often than not I find it trite and tiring. And then I saw the above article, and well, nothing in it is false. And for some reason that makes me like him that much more. People continue to hide behind the fact that Big Ben hasn’t been charged in either of the two investigations (Las Vegas and Georgia) and that’s all well and good, but let’s not skirt the main issue. Big Ben is a Big Dummy. A creep. A predator. A boozy celebrity with absolutely no foresight. Should I continue? I think you get the point.

Now I realize that 40 years ago, Kenny “Snake” Stabler and Lawrence Taylor used to gallivant around town without a care in the world. They got away with plenty and barely ever was it front page news. But that was then and this is now. Sports pundits across the country have commented on Big Ben’s judgment problem, but that’s only the tip of the iceberg. To quote a Tiger Woods phrase, he thinks he’s entitled. Now certainly Ben is free to do whatever he wants. He’s single, young and has loads of money. But for the love of God, how hard is it to keep your nose clean?
