Pro athletes = Thugs

I remember my disillusionment nearly twenty years ago when I learned about how Kevin Mitchell, formerly of my beloved 1986 World Series champion New York Mets, had bragged about how he had killed a cat or a dog. (Go Google it; I hate reading the details of such things, so I’m not going to refresh my memory on exactly what Mitchell’s pastime was).

There a certainly a myriad of examples to point to showing the thuggery of professional athletes. I think that getting enjoyment out of the abuse of animals says a great deal about a person.
