How stupid can you be?

To those who much is given can a little common sense be expected?

Former Virginia Tech QB, Marcus Vick has found himself at odds with almost everything his lot in life has afforded him. Not to say that he has led his life into some morbid decline to which we have to watch like a bad wreck just to see the number of casualties that will be pulled out. Marcus has been extremely blessed by the proxy of his older brother, Ron Mexico.

Since taking the QB helm at Virginia Tech, Lil Mexico has been charged with:
  • Serving alcohol to minors,
  • Assault,
  • Possession of marijuana,
  • Speeding and driving on a suspended license,
  • and Brandishing a firearm.
This is not to mention his exploits during games, which include, but are not limited to:
  • shooting the bird at fans in W. Virginia,
  • and stomping Elvis Dumberville in his last game as a Hokie.
definitely not the behavior of a Mexico and I am sure Mama Mexico taught him better.
However these type things are in character with a spoiled kid. And so it is hard to imagine a youngster from Newport (Bad News) News, VA not understanding how to humble himself when there is a good deal on the line. It is hard to imagine the strongest hustler from Bad News not recognizing his surroundings and governing himself accordingly. It is hard to imagine, considering his background, that some system of self-check not being deployed.
