Everybody getting riled up about AD disciplining his child

September 16, 2014

When I first heard the news of Adrian Peterson being arrested for child abuse, I thought, it can't get any worse than this — and then I got the details of what he did.
He did nothing more than switch his child. A form of discipline that he grew up with and what probably made him the player and the person he is today. He left a few welts on his child's legs.
My goodness, one time my grandmother switched me, and I thought was going to kill me.
Why is everybody getting their panties in a wad about AD for disciplining his child and calling for the reinstatement of Ray Rice?

Fast-Pitch Softball County Tournament not going to start until Tuesday due to wet fields in Panama; JH LCT will have champ crowned Saturday at PARC

Due to wet fields, today’s opening-day games were postponed until Tuesday, with Tuesday’s originally-slated games taking place Thursday. Thursday’s games will take place Monday, meaning it will be next week before the county champion will be crowned.
