I like pro football, you know. I hope you do also.

The draft, this year, I didn’t watch. The primaries, and the votes and all that sort of stuff. Got in the way. There is NASCAR too. Anyway, I did catch some news of the draft and the folks were speculating about a player losing seven million for past indiscretions. Seemed fair, I suppose, considering the amount of money involved and the chance they were taking putting that person on to the Dolphins.

This morning, voting day in IN. I naturally let slip the blog to the back burner. So while I was wading through the tales I might tell, and the news I might bring, an article caught me by surprise.

The Kansas City Chiefs. Yeah, they haven’t dropped out of the league yet. Mores the pity. They took their turn at the draft.

One of their picks:

WICHITA, Kan — The sports world is still buzzing about the Kansas City Chief’s controversial draft pick Tyreek Hill.

He is still on probation for a domestic violence incident involving his pregnant girlfriend.

Tyreek Hill is an amazing receiver as well as punt and kick returner. He played for two years at Garden City Community College before going to Oklahoma State. But he was kicked off the team there for a domestic violence arrest.

While Tyreek Hill was playing for Oklahoma State Stillwater Police report he was arrested for punching his then girlfriend in the face and the stomach. The woman was two months pregnant with Hill’s child. Police also say he choked her.

Hill pleaded guilty last August, paid a fine was given three year’s probation.

The writer makes hash of the article. It seems simple enough, but the writer makes it seem the man had forty-eleven charges brought against him. Love children and shotguns go together very well, and the thing called child support and the window dressing called alimony.

And young men are always surprised that kids follow you all life long. Dreadful. A very confusing time of life, that time of opportunity.  Short lived, mores the pity.

Enough to make a fellow cry.

He likes candy, pies and a certain amount of strife. In the matter of strife - in his yourth on the farm, he became embroiled in a slinging fight. The fight involved lath as a launcher, fresh cow patties as ammo and it was a six way free for all. A little mud only adds (Umm?) a certain taste to life.
