Thugs in the NFL? What the hell? I mean, if you're not into such a violent sport that's fine ( I know you're a baseball guy ) but don't use such a broad based, to say nothing of coded, brush to paint with.
As someone who lives in the South I agree the mouth breathers who wouldn't know a classroom from a bathroom do grate on the nerves. But hey, it's better than the creeps who obsess about high school football and put expectations on other people's children.
