Everyone else is way ahead of me on this story, but in case you missed it Clinton Portis recently recanted his earlier comments on dog fighting and, in my opinion, acquitted himself quite well of his prior statements (for the most part).
I had no idea the love that people have for animals or didn't consider it when I made those comments... I'm not even a pets man. I've got a fish -- that's the easiest thing to keep up. I've never been into dogs, never dealt with dogs, don't like playing with dogs. But at the same time, there's a lot of people who are crazy over pets.
My advice? More costumes.
