A common theme among those who deal with retail outlets is the lack of old school customer service. My dad calls it a lack of professional pride. Doesn't matter if you're stacking boxes at a supermarket, do it right, show the bosses and customers you're on top of it, even if you have to fake it a bit. Imagine getting the opportunity to live out a childhood dream of becoming a pro athlete. Then go up a few notches to one of the most well paid jocks on the planet. Ladies & germs I give you Albert Haynesworth of the Washington Redskins. Signed a 100 million dollar deal to play on the D-line prior to last year and truth be told he sucked. Missed 4 games and had his lowest production in 3 years. Then in May, after receiving a monster balloon payment of 21 million dollars, failed to report to a mini camp ticked off because they were switching from a standard 4-3 to a 3-4 style defense. Okay, that got worked out and he blessed us all by showed up for training camp in preparation for the 2010 season. On back to back days he's been denied the chance to take part in practice because his fat ass failed a conditioning test. What a freaking embarrassment! He needs a dad, uncle, or friend to show up at their facility in Ashburn, Virginia and smack him upside his head.
The more I think and read about it, the more livid I grow over this whole Jeremiah Masoli issue. The audacity of starting up a website(jeremiahmasoli.net) to pretty much point the finger of blame everywhere but in the mirror. This guy has issues and it starts with a complete and total failure to man up and accept responsibility for his many disgraceful actions. I will lose all respect for Mississippi coach Houston Nutt if he allows this clown to play Division 1 football this year at a prestigious SEC University. No way around it, the message is atrocious. Break the law, humiliate your teammates, community and program, get suspended then kicked out but still get to thumb your nose at the world. Disgusting. JM might have won some football games with his gift, but from my chair right now he's the definitive loser!
