Role Models

I roll my eyes every time an NBA player does something wrong and some idiot says he’s a terrible role model for our kids. He’s an NBA player. HE ISN’T GETTING PAID TO RAISE YOUR KIDS!! He’s there’s to rebound, assist, score points, and play defense. If you as a parent want your child to understand good moral values, then YOU teach it to them, don’t turn on the TV and expect the Phoenix Suns to do it. Or God forbid the Portland Trailblazers.

Hey, if I was an NBA player I would be trying to get this guy’s phone number. I would call him up and say you know what, you SUCK as a role model for your kids! HOWYOULIKEMENOW??

    So many parents in this country want to blame the media, other kids, school systems, music, South Park, etc. It’s amazing to me how many people can’t and won’t accept responsibility for their own actions and decisions.

    I might not have any kids but I think I can safely say that I won’t be sheltering my kids from reality or trying to paint a picture of a Utopian society for them.

    I want my kids to know that NBA players aren’t fucking perfect-or role models for God’s sakes. That way when the NBA player fucks up I can say “see what happens when you’re rich? Now shut up and eat your grits!!”

    I let my kids watch Southpark but I also make sure they know there is a difference between fantasy and reality and while it’s entertaining to see cartoon characters act like that it doesn’t make it ok to act like that in real life. For example it’s ok to talk smack to your friends but it’s not ok to kill an orange coat kid every episode.

    I believe that NBA players are role models and should behave as such. My freaking God how hard is it to just chill the hell out when you make millions. As far as kids looking up to these guys I can only speak for myself, when I was growing up and if Magic Johnson or Franco Harris would have said go out get drunk, high and beat your old lady I probably would have done it, or at least thought about it. My parents were good role models and very involved in my life but they couldn’t measure up to Magic or Franco, as cool as my dad was he never had a triple double or rushed for 1,000 yards in a season…..

    My dad left when I was a kid. You know who MY role model was? That mexican guy in the ortega taco shell commercial who bit a bad shell and the taco went all over him and he said “aw looook, it’s all over my bullets and everything!” Try basing 35 years of your life’s values on THAT!

  5. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    Better to be Mexican and have that guy for a role model than being Columbian and having Juan Valdez out picking coffee beans in the mountains as something to aspire to

  6. Mexigogue says:

    Everybody knows the coffee is just a front. It gives him an excuse to move product plus it covers up the smell of the cocaine.

  7. rae says:

    Cocaine only smells if it’s cut with Comet or another household cleaner. Good shit doesn’t smell. At least, that’s what I heard from my one friend who knew someone that knew someone that did it.

  8. Mexigogue says:

    Police dogs can sniff it out. That’s why drug smugglers might put lots of ground coffee around it. At least that’s what “Beverly Hills Cop” would lead us to believe.

    ROLE MODEL OF THE ORTEGA TACO SHELL GUY!

    hadhhhahahdflshlflsaflalhfhadfs… :dead:

    Holy shit that’s funny. And so you let your kids watch southpark but then explain to them the difference between that (fantasy) and real life? Honestly? you do that? I agree you should, I’m just wondering how it goes down in real life… like from 10:30 – 10:35 is Caucasiogogue’s “life lessons” … and then you may sleep..

    “we walk an endless mile”

    You know what makes people mad? When they say “Words can hurt just as much as a fist” and then you clobber them with a roundhouse outta hell!

  11. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    Isn’t a roundhouse done with a foot?

  12. Mexigogue says:

    It can be a roundhouse kick or a roundhouse punch.

  13. HMT says:

    but preferrably a kick. Trust me, there is nothing as satisfying in life as catching someone with a roundhouse kick to the side of the head..

    NOTHING.

  14. Mexigogue says:

    Don’t say that too loud. That happened to the “D” once and he says he still has a click in his jaw.

  15. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    What ever happened to “D”?

  16. Mexigogue says:

    All he does nowadays is work and play America’s Army. He’s addicted to that game. What a weirdo!

  17. Phelps says:

    I love grits and coffee and cocaine!

  18. Mexigogue says:

    That’s a trinity akin to alcohol, tobbaco, and firearms!

    Hey guys, go here! Check out THIS debate!!!

    I used to take Kenpo Karate classes. I remember one day we were sparring and the guy threw a roundhouse at my head. I raised my hand to block it but I wound up punching myself in the face.

    My jaw clicks, too, ever since then. That must have been fuckin’ 9 years ago.

    Oh, and I’m going to blame my kids’ bad behavior on the Mexigogue’s blog.

  21. R says:

    I wound up punching myself in the face not because I raised my hand to block and decided instead to punch myself in the face, but because the kick connected against my hand and sent my fist crashing into my face.

    For clarification.

  22. guy in the UNLV jacket says:

    stupid

  23. Phelps says:

    I punched myself in the head because Russ Martin was doing it and it sounded like fun. I got a killer buzz. And it made my head and fist hurt.

  24. Mexigogue says:

    I did the same thing but since I get the show on a day’s delay I e-mailed Russ and told him I was punching myself a day late.

  25. Phelps says:

    The worst part about punching yourself in the head is the buildup. You really can’t just haul off and punch yourself in the head. You have to decide to do it, then you have to get settled, and then you have to take aim, and then you almost have to have a countdown before WHAM — you smack yourself. And then you are dazed for a minute and it doesn’t actually click that you just punched yourself. Then you remember what you were doing and start giggling.
