I guess this is the new hotness these days? Everyone hopping on Twitter to make Primetime and playoff jokes about a guy who just lost his luggage? What the hell is wrong with this world, huh? Whatever happened to a little Good Samaritan action? People helping people, stuff like that? Sorry if it’s un-cool to ask for a helping hand here in 2016. So what if Andy Dalton is just a small town Texas boy who isn’t exactly self-aware and doesn’t understand how that looks when a starting NFL quarterback takes to Twitter to find some lost bags. So what if most guys with a hundred million dollars to their name would just say fuck it, you find the bags, you keep ‘em. That’s not the kind of values you’re taught growing up in Katy, Texas and that’s not the kind of values we practice in our little corner of Mt. Lookout. We’re good people. We’re family people. We have each other’s backs. So if you or someone you knows finds Andy’s missing luggage, please, pretty please with sugar on top, contact either myself or the Daltons directly and we will get this straightened out immediately (I won’t even tell them you took a peek inside either. Promise).
I’ll leave you with this. It’s a passage from Luke 10:27:
He answered, “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.”
After all, it is Ash Wednesday, a banner day in the Catholic Church. I think my neighbors the Dalton’s would share the same sentiment given the circumstances.
