Befor you read any further, understand this... "I" realize that I'm not pointing my finger at any of you guys any more then at myself. Please realize it too. Got It? Good. Read on.
To all of you who have posted for far... You all bring to this thread some good input. I hope that this next bit of infomation will be help us understand what kind of impact "Sports Stars" have on us regular T.V. watching, sports event attending, logo buying, brand loyal to the death (That's me), individules.
Can we say (I almost choke when type this) Dennis Rodmen. QUICK WHERE IS NEAREST PLACE I CAN VOMIT. Boy that smells funny, looks funny too. OK back to my point. I can still hear (Oh boy... I feel my tummy starting to rummble again) Charle Barkley saying that "I am not a roll model". BULL PUCKIE! These people, and any other person who is in the lime light, are very much roll models and anybody who thinks otherwise is wrong.
The nail could not have been hit more squarely then by E.G.O. & THUMPIN' ROCK HUCKER about being the kind of parent who puts the time in with there own kids to teach them "real life".
I am going to steal a term from the old E.G.O. here? Can we say "Sheeple" We are all guilty of it form time to time.
So What is my point you ask. Quite simple.
*Do you have holes in your body that God didn't put there? I don't
*Do you have ink on you body that God didn't put there? I don't
*Can you do a back flip with your bike? I can't
*Will I put holes in my body and ink all over the rest of it to empower myself to accomplish these "TRICKS"? NOPE!!!!!
Thanks Mom for giving me a great start on life. I love you
p.s. If your thinking about rippin on me because it sounds like I ripped on all you who have holes and ink, don't. All three of my kids (All grown up now) have lots of "extra" stuff and that is OK with me. I know that there mom and I have raised them smart enough to do the right thing no matter what is on the out-side.

Ok Mike... Would you like to explain your thought so we can understand just what you feel so "sorry" for? Or.... Did you not completely read my post as well as all the others. I think that what I've said was very open minded while not pointing my finger at anyone in a bad way. Heck, if I pointed at anyone it was myself. I'm not rippin on ya I would just like to know.

When the guys from back in the day get together they say "Beezer remember when you.......". When I got pulled over the cops would let me go, my buddies couldn't drive around the block without a ticket.
It was all in the appearances.
Now that I have kids the shoe is on the other foot. Someone is going to TRY to do to my daughter what I did to someone else's daughter years back.
The more Go-Go bars you visit the larger your daughters breasts are going to be.

Dude, I love the "Iowa" album!! Those guys are great musicians. Some of it's really good and well... some is crap. Marlyn Manson has some pretty good tunes too but mostly crap (and nothing like Glenn Campbell)!! It's all about parenting if you ask me. When I was a youngster one of my idols was Evil Kneivel. Just because he jumped Ceasers doesn't mean that I tried to jump my parents house. When I was 9 (1977) my dad took me and my brother to see Kiss and Cheap Trick at the forum in LA. Even at nine I knew Gene Simmons wasn't really spitting up blood and my parents were understanding of my liking of the band and they were there with me. If you've ever seen the movie "Detroit Rock City"? It shows a mom trying to keep her son away from Kiss, my parents were just the opposite saying: This is all an act!! It's just pretend!! I think that parenting is so underrated... My Mom and Dan were consistantly good and reliable parents always showing me right from wrong.
Getting back to the backflip. That was perfect!! The best I've seen. If I had a son I would tell him not to do it unless he trained for it, I mean really trained for it.
Oh, and Pastrana? He doesn't want to win anymore, isn't it obvious? He just want's to be a kid and have fun (I can't blame him). Remember when MC left Honda cuz they didn't want him to do anything that would get him hurt? Travis should be right with Charmichael right about now but doesn't have the drive too.
Tatoos, I would love to have one but there's nothing that I want to have inked on my body. Koi fish? Roses? Kiss? Hmmmmm.......

Someone earlier mentioned piecings and I can tell you first hand that having a provocative person does NOT make you white trash or less of a person.
My girlfriend of many years for instance is a masters degreed (working on PHD) professional and she happens to have her belly button pierced.
Does that make her white trash? No, I don't think so, so keep your stupid blanket statements to yourself.
