Lighten Up, Lady

24 Jan

In today’s Boston Herald there’s this letter to the editor:

<< I’m sure I’m one of few Bostonians happy over the results of the Patriots–Colts game (Jan. 22). I’m happy there was no post-victory rioting or needless deaths, and I’m happy that a haughty coach and legions of hubris-driven, swaggering fans have been humbled. Mostly, I’m glad to know that there will be free time available to these obsessed minions that will hopefully be used toward a more conscientious purpose in our world than sports obsession. Maybe they’ll even have time to check out the true heroes — health care and human services workers, teachers and the like — and worship them instead of billionaire, profit-driven megalomanagers and men who happen to know how to toss pigskin around. >>

Jeeeeez. What a wet blanket.

How lame can one person be?

I won’t even begin to make fun of what she’s saying, but I will take issue with her characterization of Robert Kraft as a “billionaire, profit-driven megalomanager.”

You’ll be hard-pressed to find a more generous sports owner than Uncle Bob (and his wife, Auntie Myra). The couple have donated tens of millions of dollars to a variety of philanthropic causes over the years.

This woman, this Susie Davidson of Brookline, should look into that before she makes such lame characterizations.
