Winning Forgives All Sinning

Just finished watching the Netflix project on Aaron Hernandez. I mean this athletically talented young man who became an absolute danger to not only others in society but also himself in the end. So, what did the project want to prove? Playing football and being entitled because of that gift caused Aaron Hernandez to sway off course, or being undercover gay and forced displays of masculinity caused Aaron Hernandez to leave murdered bodies and loss souls in his wake? I do know one thing this American society we live in today has absolutely allowed a kid’s game to become so all important that people are willing to accept all sorts of deviant behavior from the game’s participants just to have a winning team in their city. What has become of our values when win at any and all costs is now the measure of success in life. We glorify winning and because of that we see the crumbling of country’s values. It used to be it doesn’t matter whether you win or lose. It’s how you play the game that counts. Now you are a joker if you take that line because “winning at all costs “ forgives all the sinning you did to get to the gloried circle of winning.
