Another Dem Backs Gay Marriage | Daily Crew | Scoop.it
Sen. Bill Nelson (D-Fla.) announced his support for gay marriage Thursday, becoming the 51st senator to do so. "If we are endowed by our Creator with rights, then why shouldn't those be attainable by gays and lesbians?
Bret's insight:

No matter what they did, you are right there is no excuse to hit players, students, children etc.
Michael Chmielewski's comment, April 14, 2013 10:07 AM
Nobody should defend Rice. There is no way that his players deserved any of that. There are a lot of teams that are great teams WITHOUT abuse included. Everybody knows that abuse is never the right thing to do. Rice has no excuse for his horrible actions.
Adam Alexander Schoessler's curator insight, May 8, 2013 8:06 PM

When I first herd about this I felt terrible for the players and students being abused by the coach. Im glad this guy is being ridiculed so much because his actions are counter acting what sports are all about; teamwork, integrity, sportsmanship, respect, discipline, and being a good role model.
