It was announced today that Washaun Ealey is once again out of the ‘dawg house,’ and will resume activities with the team on Monday. It was just February 8, 2011 when CMR announced Ealey’s suspension from all team activities, ‘indefinitely,’ for not doing things “The Georgia Way!” The emphasis on ‘indefinite’ would have led a normal interpretation to be a long time if not forever. Apparently, as each human year equals seven in dog years, in Athens, each indefinite suspension in human years equals only 2 ½ weeks in ‘Dawg years.” (source: nbcsports.com)
You see, when you and I were young and stupid and did the occasional dumb thing, we were lucky to be granted the cherished “second chance” to straighten up and fly right. Ergo the old saying “three strikes and you’re out!” But not in today’s society. No sir! Second chances are a thing of the past. You see now, especially if you are a football player for a major university; you are entitled by birthright to a third, fourth, fifth, and maybe even sixth chance to screw up again.
It is all a matter of perspective. In our current society, there are no bad kids or juvenile delinquents; there are only good kids, who continually find themselves in bad ‘situations.’ So, CMR, way to go! You’re a good man for giving this poor lad multiple chances to get straight. You have set a fine example for the other members of your football team!
By the way CMR, regarding Zach Mettenberger, who wasn’t even given a second chance (and trust me, I‘m not saying he should have), I have two questions: 1) Where is the parity? 2) In twenty five words or less, explain the difference between the ‘Georgia Way’ and the ‘LSU Way’ (where Mettenberger will more than likely start this year). Wouldn’t it be a bitch if we win the East this year; go to Atlanta to play LSU (Western Division winner); and lose the Championship to Mettenberger. Nah! Couldn’t happen! Right?
