Burn down the disco. Hang the blessed DJ. Because the music that he constantly plays, it says nothing to me about my life.
I just dont think its fair that we discuss if he should have been out, or stated that "I wouldnt have been out" or what ever Razor is trying to say as if he never made a mistake when his wife was preggers and is on higher level of responsibility. We have no idea what the reason for him being out. I simply feel that if he discussed it with his wife, and they both felt like it wasnt going to be a problem I dont fault him for being out at all. I dont know if he did or if he didnt. I just think we should reserve our bashing of him being out in the 1st place until we hear some details about it.
Driving home is a completely different part.
I'm sorry you don't get a mulligan for Drunk Driving, ever. There are a few things I cannot tolerate in any situation, Drunk Driving is one of them. Again what if he'd hit someone? Would you still say "oh, I'll give him a mulligan?"If his story is true, which I have doubts about the validity of the story, I give him a mulligan.
I agree with all of this, and he should have made arrangements for an emergency, but he didn't. Sorry you don't get a "mulligan" for that.Maybe you (generally speaking) wouldn't be at a bar with a 8.5 month pregnant wife but its Hall's decision to make and not ours. We don't know how he planned on getting home, maybe he planned on taking a cab home. Maybe he planned on his wife picking him up, who really knows.
Second, I clearly stated in that post that it was my choice and did not say anyone else should hold themselves to that standard. I was implying that if he was going to choose to go out and get drunk he should have made plans for an emergency, he didn't. I hope he faces the stiffest penalties possible.
Again the biggest problem I have is with the idea that several people have that he should get a "mulligan" because his wife was pregnant. You haven't answered whether or not you're on board with that idea. If you're not, then I don't have too much of a beef with you (except for the times you've made it seem like I was saying things that I was not saying). I've been under the impression that you are on board with the "mulligan" line of thinking, if you're not then I apologize for thinking that you were.
Let's not let this get personal, please.
We don't need to put him in the stocks on fountain square.
The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.
