With any luck, he won't be after this. Someone who would so wilfully risk the life of his child shouldn't be able to touch the kid with a 10 mile pole.

What a jewel. I wonder if he will be available for babysitting after his basketball career is over?

Least he's still involved in the kid's life

NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO, NO

NO

you do NOT get special credit for being involved in your child's life...mother, father, married, unmarried, teen, elderly, famous, not famous....taking care of your child is a basic responsibility, and you do not get kudos for doing it. It is a GIVEN.

sorry..i realize there is a possibility you were just joking or being sarcastic, but I HATE the whole "at least (s)he's involved in the kids life..." *snarls*
rant over.

We need a sarcastic button or something in addition to bold, italics, and underline.

I shoulda put up my picture of a funny baby shirt I was gonna include... lemme go see if it's still around.

Here it is, for a limited time:

lol..as I thought about it, it seemed like you were most likely being sarcastic...but sometimes you surprise me, so I wasn't sure..but by then, the damage was done..i see red whenever someone utters that line.....visceral reaction. ;)

Heh, yeah, I should be more clear since I'm often at odds with the general opinion around here. I was too caught up in deciding whether to post that pic (the site is going down in a week or so and I didn't want a big red x there) that I forgot to make it clear that I was being sarcastic/joking.

When I first read the story today, I was wondering if CPS would ever be called on that guy. I don't get why pro athletes don't bother getting a vasectomy. I mean, some just clearly don't wanna be dads so why leave yourself open to having one?

I'm just glad the cops treated him as severely as they would anyone else.

After all, we hear way too often about celebrities getting it easy.

That child needed to be in a properly used carseat.

Yeah, he tried to pull the "I'm an athlete" bit. Nice to see the cops not caring. In many cities, taht would not be the case. We all know the fines from the ticket wouldn't deter him at all. The public suspension and bad publicity is a much better deterrant for athletes.
