Ego Strikes Again: Plaxico Burress Most Recent Example

In Ego Unchecked on December 8, 2008 at 3:29 pm

On of the main themes of this blog discusses how the “ego” is destroying the black man.  We’ve all heard or read about the NY Giant’s wide receiver, along with his buddy, Antonio Pierce trip to a New York night club at 1:30 AM.  Well, click here to read more.  During our discussions about the ego, by regular men at the barber shop, we discussed how corrosive our behaviors can be.  The Plaxico Burress story is another illustration of what happens when one is rewarded with a large contract after “performing well on the field” only to jeopardize it just a quickly off the field.  I have absolutely no sympathy for this stupid, ignorant moron posing as a football player.  Jerry Rice, the greatest receiver of all time NEVER got even close to behaving this way.  Michael Vick now has someone he can throw to so he can keep in shape while locked up.  And the brother’s inside should be obliged to kick Burress’ dumb ass for being so stupid and ignorant.

Let us know what you think?
