Reggie, You Didn’t Need that Heisman Anyway

I am not sure if Reggie Bush has ever read a word I’ve written. But after I mentioned last week that I felt Bush should give the Heisman trophy back, I was proud to see that he gave it away. Again, I am not one to say that he gives a you-know-what about anything I might say in public, but I can certainly say that I am proud.
Bush gave the Heisman trophy back this week after rampant speculation regarding whether or not he received inappropriate benefits during his time at USC. The speculation was bothersome to me, primarily because Reggie Bush was a human highlight film who earned millions for the NCAA and the university. The idea that they would even consider taking his Heisman Trophy after he’d given the NCAA so much was nothing short of offensive. If a man earns millions of dollars for you and you get angry because he took a few thousand to give his mother a place to live, then you’ve clearly got a problem with your value system.
Bush’s statement about giving the Heisman back is below:

    Hey bud, great blog you got over here, keep it up! To be honest I don’t think that Bush giving up the Heisman is all that big a deal. The thing is that you can’t take away the fact that he still did all those great things. It wasn’t steroids it was something else, not specified which to be isn’t a big deal in the big picture. Also, you think you could check out my blog cuz I really wanna hear your thoughts on mine. http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2010/09/15/who-cares-about-reggie-bush-giving-back-the-heisman/
