I know the OT had its doubters...but ESPN.COM Article by Rick Reilly


Rick Reilly, the author, wrote an article about Joe Pa and Penn State and I started following him on Twitter (which I don't really like or use much).

Well, about a month ago, he Tweeted ("If I get over 100K followers, I will write a story on one of my followers...#shameless ploy...What's your story?)

So I said...why not! So I responded back something like, "Kidnapped when I was younger, father shot and killed kidnapper, he didn't go to jail"! That night I got a tweet with an email saying, "Please tell us more".

Well, Sunday I got an email saying "I won" and Rick would do an article. It was originally meant for his blog or website, but ESPN picked it up.

What I sent him in the email was "I was hoping to attend the conference at Penn State with SRL and Elizabeth Smart".

It's a shame it has been 28 years and so little has changed. The timing was right with the Sandusky sentencing. I wish Joe Pa had lived to see this...that POS!!!

PS---AT LEAST I AM REPRESENTING THE TIGERS!!! LSU

Holy shit! Are you really the kid and not some poser? I guess there's no way for you to prove that, so it's a faith game.

I have been accused of being a "poser" in the past! That is why I shared this article with the O-T.

If this does not prove I am who I say I am...then hell..what can I do to prove it! Plus...who the f-k would pretend to be me

It was damn good to see actual justice served in that video. More justice is needed in this world. Wrongs have a need to be avenged in a real manner.
People will someday get what is coming to them. Sometimes it is best that judge and jury lay in a wronged man's hand and not that of politicians.
