The shows were packed, and everyone seemed to be having a really good time, laughing and such. I just wish I knew I could understand what was going on. The dancing was good, but the rest of the shows, were all Spanish only. “I chose not to read it,” he explains, “just because I only wanted to get a sense of who Harry was up until that point. I love the books! They’re easy to read but not disposable, there are lots of layers and depths and complexities, lots of research. These are books that are really intelligently woven together, so reading them one after another has not only been great fun but has made me really understand this character so much better.”.
Just got back from my sleep study and yup, I have sleep apnea. They gathered enough data to establish that in the first few hours, so they switched me to a CPAP at which point I dropped into 4 hours of deep sleep. It feels kinda strange, honestly, to wake up feeling relatively rested and alert..
How video sticks to the bones!It didn’t matter to Goodell, the Ravens, ESPN or the NFL’s marketing strategists that Lewis played as an unrepentant concussionist, often penalized and fined for illegal, needlessly brutal attacks to the heads of opposing players, then stomping around their flattened bodies to perform self smitten, ritualized blood dances.And that blood dance is what this statue depicts! World gone nuts!Yet, although he the last guy any right headed entity would choose to publicly represent it, Lewis immediately became ESPN’s gotta have guy. ESPN didn’t even care if he was weak on discernible English; it snapped him up. Perhaps, as an unpaid star of the mirthfully brutal “He Got Jacked Up!,” ESPN owed him.The NFL chose him to sell merchandise; Goodell hugged him; ESPN hired him; the Ravens placed a statue of him at their front door.He pleaded guilty to obstructing the investigation of a double homicide! He paid off the victims’ families! He claims he has no idea what happened to his bloodied white suit in which he fled the murder scene! Eyewitnesses recanted! Does that mean zilch to those who can think logically, responsibly?What happens to that statue if you slap bronze cuffs on it? But he’s not Ray Rice; there’s no video of those murders.So Ray Lewis, now with ESPN and with six children from four women, appears on national TV to provide his sage opinion on matters of social responsibility and comportment by NFL players.The complicity of sports’ shot callers in shoving us backwards while destroying the integrity of their own products continues its gangrenous growth.
