No Good Deed Goes Unpunished

Eric Mangini

It was one of the “feel good” stories of the weekend.  Cleveland Browns coach Eric Mangini holding his annual football clinic in his native Hartford, especially for kids at his alma mater, Bulkeley High School.

But apparently the Browns rookies he brought with him may not have been so pleased to be there.  Something about a ten hour bus ride.   And Jets Nation is chiming in, because Mangini tapped into his former team for help as well.

I hope the Bulkeley kids learned some lessons on the football field, because it would seem the players had little to offer in life lessons.  And if there were any spoiled brats in attendance, it appears they sure as hell weren’t from Hartford.

    Ah, Marshall. The behavior bar, since we were kids watching Y.A. and Frank Gifford, has been lowered a bit, hasn’t it.
