Speaking of Football....

Post by 3DG on Thu Mar 05, 2009 1:29 pm

Ohio has so much MORE to be proud of.......

Ohio State football: Clarett writes, reflects on prison blog


by Doug Lesmerises Tuesday March 03, 2009, 4:40 PM



His first blog entry was posted on Oct. 8, 2008, but 'The Mind of Maurice Clarett" is just now reaching a wider audience.
The former Ohio State running back, currently in Toledo Correctional Institution, doesn't have computer access, but has been dictating his musings on life, and not including much about football, to his family during phone calls.
The guy's not bad. One random thought wondered how to politely tell someone his breath stinks, but nearly every other post is much deeper than that.

The news that the blog exists is fairly new, and the idea that it was someone else acting like Clarett had legs for a while, which Clarett found flattering. But no ghost writer or imposter here.
This is all Clarett, and a lot of it. I haven't read through the entries in depth, but he makes a lot of references of trying to inspire people, hoping others can learn from his mistakes.
With the latest attention, Clarett writes today that prison officials are worried he'll start blogging about prison life. That's not in Clarett's plans.
He writes:

I created this site for other reasons. There are too many young men and women that need hope and inspiration. To a large degree, prison doesn't exist to me anymore. I'm mentally removed, on certain levels. My mental sentence expired when I decided to educate myself. I spend all of the hours of my days developing my life's vision. I don't have the time to think about prison. I'm just waiting for my physical sentence to expire.

I don't know, if he's taking the time to make himself a better person, then it's got to be worth something. Prison should be more than just punishment, ideally it should include giving someone a different perspective about their life so they don't reoffend. For most people that comes through a desire not to wind up back in prison; this guy just seems to be taking a different route.

Oh come on....for real??? I would say that GENERALLY you are correct. But this asshat is just that - an asshat. This is nothing more than to get his name spoken again. And i believe that you are born with the asshat gene so you can't get that rehabilitated. Smile
