How Tom Beat Captain Najork and His Hired Sportsmen

I must pick up the blogging slack.

Stacey pointed out to me that her personal anti-hero, Lebron James, was named "Sportsman of the Year" by Sports Illustrated.

Let's see ...

He won his first NBA championship with a team that was cobbled together by violating the NBA's own anti-tampering and anti-collusion rules ...

In the same year it was revealed that his girlfriend, Sharon Reed, just gave birth to his third known child and moved down to Miami ...

In the same year he finally became "engaged" to his long-time companion, Savanna, who is the mother of two of his children.

He had a good year?

What does this say about the accepted culture of sports in this country and the men, in the main, who so worship and honor professional athletes and hold those athletes up to their children and the rest of society as role models?
