Well, another well known, well respected family man bites the dust. It seems these things always get more attention when that is the case. If Marino was a shady character this wouldn't even make headlines, however, I guess that comes with the territory. I'm not going to make excuses for Marino, nor should I. However, I am beyond the point in my life of being part of the lynch mob. 75% of all marriages end in divorce. You can't sugar coat that. Marriage isn't easy and it takes perserverance to get through the tough times. It takes commitment, dedication and a never give up attitude on both peoples behalf to go the distance. Not that Marino will get a divorce, his wife may be able to overcome this but it is likely. Most can't overlook infidelity and even the Bible makes this one case as a reason for divorce. I've never put anyone outside of God on a pedestal, so when something like this happens I'm never shocked by it. Hence, Marino didn't get diminished in my eyes. I am sad for him. I'm sad for his wife and his girls as most peoples indiscretions aren't front page news. His will be and that will make it particularly tough on his entire family. I'd ask that you all keep them in your thoughts and prayers over the next few weeks.
Oh yes, there's a superbowl on tap this weekend. It supposed to be a bruising affair. I'm wondering if the offenses aren't going to just duke it out and run roughshod over the defenses. Just a hunch but play the over. In any case, picking the winner would be as accurate as consulting tarot cards for financial advice...good luck with that. I don't even have a favorite in the race so I'm just going to sit back and enjoy the hits, catches, passes and runs this weekend.
