I ‘m thinking this one might not be one of the more popular cartoons that I’ve posted on this blog. But sometimes I feel the need to be a little more edgy than usual. This is one of those topics that is as debatable as Obama vs. Romney, with perhaps a little more importance. I try to listen to the voices who seem to know a little more about the game of football than I do, which is almost all of you. But the people who have actually played the game claim Tebow will never be more than an average backup in the NFL. We witnessed many a miracle in Denver last year with Tebow at the helm. It’s hard to argue with that. But he remains an unproven commodity at QB and I expect him to fall far back in the pack this season as we see that his skills at the NFL level are indeed limited. What do you think?
Today’s View From the Bull Pen
We have them all wrong. From constant news coverage of Jodi Arias and OJ Simpson to athletes getting mega bucks for playing a game, our sense of what is important is completely and totally screwed up. You'd think that we might have learned something from the recent events in Boston. That heroes emerge from even the most difficult of circumstances, but, no, we return to the inane and inconsequential. Amanda Knox. Film at 11.
I drew this cartoon after reading the recent story about Andrew Wiggins, supposedly the "next" LeBron James, signing a letter of intent with Kansas. While Wiggins did his best to keep his signing from becoming too much of a circus, it still carried huge weight in the 24/7 news cycle. It made me think of the number of brilliant kids who will walk across graduation stages all over our country in the next few weeks, whose names are only heard as they stride forward to get their diplomas. No newspaper columns are written or press conferences held for valedictorians or honor students, but, hey, dribble a basketball and we hear all about it. Priorities. Yeah. I'd say we have them pretty screwed up.
As always, your readership and your comments help to make the world go round, so please continue to add them. I will try to do a better job of responding.
There isn't a way to leave comments in the Bull Pen so please feel free to leave your comments under the latest cartoon that I post.
