A great pick me up for when you're feeling dumb

Whenever you get to thinking that you've said or done something really stupid or inappropriate here's a column written by the Sports Columnist for the Orange County Register that will quickly convince you that you're not so stupid after all.

This is what he wrote about that young woman who was kidnapped and imprisoned in a shack as a sex slave for 18 years.

"It doesn't sound as if Jaycee Dugard got to see a sports page. Box scores were not available to her from June 10, 1991 until Aug. 31 of this year. She never saw a highlight. Never got to the ballpark for Beach Towel Night. Probably hasn't high-fived in a while. She was not allowed to spike a volleyball. Or pitch a softball. Or smack a forehand down the line. Or run in a 5-footer for double bogey. Now, that's deprivation."

Some jocks are dumb and some jocks are smart; but Mark Whicker, who writes about them, is dumb as a post, dense as lead and clueless as a conga drum.

If you want to read the whole column you can read it here:
