Let's Go Do Some Crimes

While the rational, grown-up part of me recognizes, of course, that footballers are human beings like the rest of us, beset by the same human frailties--which they all too often exhibit both on and off the pitch--there is also an eight-year-old living inside me who looks upon even the players on our local squad as shining heroes.

So, when I run across a story like this one (by way of Roberto's Timbers blog), about former Timbers forward Fadi Afash's new career defrauding the elderly of their life savings, I am reduced to a state almost unknown to me: speechlessness.
