|Dallas Cowboy Josh Brent is dealing with REAL life right now!|
Plato once said, “A good decision is based on knowledge and not on numbers. Napoleon Bonaparte was thought provoking when he said, “Nothing is more difficult, and therefore more precious, than to be able to decide.” However, Jethro the neighborhood jick always kept it real when he would say, “Good decisions come from experience and experience comes from bad decisions.”
Well Dallas Cowboys nose tackle Josh Brent made a decision on Saturday morning that cost his college (Illinois) and professional teammate Jerry Brown Jr. his life. According to Irving police, Brent was traveling at a high rate of speed while intoxicated on a State Highway 114 service road when he hit the curb flipping the joint over killing Brown in the process.
When I read the story what blew me away was the amount of people that were making ignorant comments like, “Pro athletes live a privileged life, they make way too much money and they aren’t responsible enough to handle it. So this is what you get.” What? Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! I know broke cats that drive drunk too. This isn’t a pro athlete problem homeboy, it’s a societal problem. People kill me being so jealous of pro athletes that they can’t stop for a minute and just say, “Man, that’s a sad situation for both families. I’m going to keep them in my prayers.” Sometimes when things happen that’s all that you need to say.

I’m not a drinker at all bruh. The strongest thing you’re ever going to see Ya Boy drinking is a Diet Coke but I realize that there are a lot of people that do drink socially and end up driving to the crib after the party is over. Most are legally drunk at the time and have been doing it for years. Its sad situations like this that I hope would open folks eyes to what can happen when you do drink and drive.
Don’t act like your life is perfect and look down on this cat because I bet he feels bad enough for killing his boy but he made the decision to drive drunk and now he’s got to live with it. He’s gonna spend the rest of his life wishing that he would have called a dun like me to drive he and his partner to the crib but he didn’t. That’s REAL life and REAL life has REAL consequences! Don’t jump in the ride and think you can do it because life can always happen to you too!
Holla At Ya Boy!
