The phone lines of 93.7 FM The Fan, the local radio sports show, have exploded with calls about the latest and previous high-profile cases, alleged and proven domestic violence against women and child abuse, committed by National Football League players.
Whew! What a mess.
Now you really don’t think the Old Soldier is going to get into the nuts and bolts of what’s going on in the NFL. That’s not my style. That’s not what we do here at the PittsburghFlashFiction, because you can get all the sordid details from any number of other media outlets.
Here’s my two cents.
I’m just fascinated with the contortions the NFL is going through trying to handle what has become a culture of off-field violence to go along with the on-field violence of the most profitable sports league in American culture, in American history.
Hello hello hello, all my fans of the PittsburghFlashFiction who live all over the world! Guy Hogan is my name and flash fiction is my game.
How’s everyone doing? How do you like my little girlie magazine? Yes, after all these years the Old Soldier has finally found his niche: I’m a blogger. And I love my job.
This is the Old Soldier reporting for Pittsburgh’s #1 online magazine of commentary, local interests, pop culture and sex as art and entertainment.
