      If there are circumstances beyond your control you had to endure it is "adversity". When you bring your own problems on yourself and have to deal with the consequences you are only facing the music. That is called "karma".

            This is a waste of an award that could have been given to someone fighting back into action from an awful injury; who'd be far more worthy of it. Stupid. Just stupid. Not what this award was meant for at all. ~Wonder who paid who for this one.

              So, according to this the ENTIRE Philadelphia Eagles team thinks pit dog fighting is OK?

                OK, I am an old lady... but Ill share this personal belief... I think sports players are very very overpaid and get way to much attention. I hear the sports fans say things like "they have short careers, they put their lives on the line.. dont you know many end up near cripples from multiple injuries, they are our modern day gladiators"..etc etc etc...

                bah humbug is what I say

                putting their lives on the line, modern day gladiators......
                What about teachers - they spend their lives giving to the next generation.
                What about nurses - they do the Dr.s work (half the time anyhow)
                What about police, fire, sheriffs... etc etc etc

                I think all the attention and money these pro sports guys get is horrible. Im sorry to be so negative, but lets get real...if anyone says it is entertainment...

                    My thoughts exactly! I'm so tired of people treating sports figures as heroes. Vick has not paid his due; it is the dogs that have died which paid.

                      Society worships sports celebrities as deities. They are no more than false idols.

                      I suggest everyone call the Ed Block office and ask "How much courage does it take to be cruel?"

                      Number is in this article
                      http://www.philly.com/philly/sports/...age_Award.html

                      Vick should have be shunned by the athletic community like a leper, not embraced and rewarded.

                              Wooo hooo!!! I couldn't agree w/ you more. Maybe if we payed more attention to our own lives, family, friends and neighbors, instead of athletes, celebrities and wannabes, our whole country would be in better shape.
