A buddy of mine is a minister of sorts, and recently had occasion to share this bit of advice with his charges (reprinted with his permission):
Here’s what I said…as best I remember it…
“We teach you to be good. We want you to be good. God wants you to be good. I try to be good.
But if you find yourself in a situation where you think you can’t be good, don’t be bad AND stupid.
You can’t afford to be bad and stupid at the same time.
Nobody can. It will ruin you.”
I like it, though it seems to lend itself to cynicism. Or is that why I like it?
Nice of Clemson to let the Seminoles back in the game, wasn’t it? Clemson 24, Free Shoes University 18. That’s three years in a row and four of the last five.
