41. I don't want to get the shit kicked out of me....
and I haven't gotten in to all the Reggie White is a bastard posts.

But he did somewhat get his due (at least I think) when the WI legislature invited him to speak (solely because of his pro-ball prowess) and he got verbal diarrhea. That stunt ended his political career.

Maybe he did go on to do great volunteer things or work w/his church (fundee or not).

But for the rest of America, Reggie White jumped the shark on that day (I know old sentiment, but fitting for him at the time).

I just meant that a person can be a pro-ball player AND a hero (just not a hero because they play ball)
