Help Me to Help You

Ok, I know that we all were young and dumb at some point in our lives and some of us can just drop the young part and keep the dumb. I have been following the NFL draft and all of the nausea inducing coverage for the past month for an event that will happen this weekend. With that said, I have a small problem here with some of the guys going into the draft.

Percy Harvin (WR from Florida) and Brandon Tate (WR from UNC) are among 2 athletes on a list that tested positive for marijuana. WTF?!?!? Guys, you are higher profile guys (both scheduled to go in the 1st or 2nd round on most mock drafts) and you are applying for a job with a major company. What are you thinking? Yes, these guys are young, but they have to have a parent, a sibling, an uncle/aunt/cousin/grandma/friend or someone telling them to keep their nose clean.

I mean these guys would take a shower, get a haircut, and brush your teeth before approaching Halle or Beyonce, so why not stay away from the ganja before the biggest interview of your life? The sad part is they know that they are going to be tested, it's common knowledge. You know when the NFL combine is, so why don't you for two months prior, just chill out? At the end of the day, this habit could negatively impact your money!!!!!

Yes, they are young and this may not hurt them as bad, but why take the chance?!?!? This goes into my Stupid Athletes Tricks file. If you guys need a mentor, just hit me up. For the money that you lost on smoking, you could have paid me about half and I would have gotten you right.

Why aren't all of the guys on the list publicized? Why not put the entire list out there? What were these kids (Harvin and Tate) thinking?
