Athletes Under Arrest

It seems like everyday, I get a text from ESPN telling me that another professional athlete has been arrested.  From Yovani Gallardo's DUI to Titus Young's three arrests in one week, professional athletes have become the epitome of stupid decision making.

I can't help but shake my head.  The make millions of dollars each year.  Why can't they hire a personal driver or a bodyguard to stop them from making poor decisions? There is no doubt that they can afford it.  Instead, they do something dumb and put their career in jeopardy.  Consequently, they make the MLB and NFL look like a group of criminals.

Moreover, these athletes are supposed to be the role models for our children.  Our kids look up to these athletes, yet these adults continue to act like children.

Professional teams should start putting their players in daycare during the off-season.  Maybe then, the arrests would stop.

I would love to read your thoughts!  Leave your comments!
