Some Things Are Okay. This Isn't.

As most anyone who has been on the internet today, I’ve watched the short clip of Ray Rice released by TMZ.

It made me a bit sick. And what made me sicker is that Ray Rice’s now wife ever apologized for anything surrounding that incident. I had a typically sassy post up this morning about my die-hard love affair with the Baltimore Ravens, but after watching the video I decided to take it down. I’m no expert on timing but I know a case of bad timing when I see it.

Don’t get me wrong; I still love my guys in purple. I just sort of wish Ray Rice wasn't one of them. 

Luckily my blog isn't the subject of national attention, so the ironic timing of my post didn't really cause a blip in the “things that matter” radar. But this blog does represent what I think. And I think that how the NFL and how Baltimore has handled this so far is wrong.

I still love you Baltimore but please get this together so I can start blogging about you again.
