Washing My Hands Of Aaron Hernandez
Published on June 27, 2013 by Sara Foss

Over at the DG, I write about Aaron Hernandez.

Here's an excerpt:

"On Monday the New England Sports Fan Friend and I watched game 6 of the Stanley Cup playoffs together, and our conversation inevitably turned to what we euphemistically referred to as the New England Patriots’ 'tight-end problem.'

'These guys were supposed to be the future of the team,' I said. 'But Gronkowski keeps having surgery, and it looks like Aaron Hernandez is headed to jail.' Hernandez had yet to be arrested, but it was quite clear that an arrest was imminent, and on Thursday he was led away from his North Attleboro mansion in handcuffs. Almost immediately, the Patriots cut Hernandez, and I breathed a sigh of relief.

Innocent until proven guilty and all that, but I’ve read the indictment, and the reports about the February incident in which Hernandez is accused of shooting a man, and today’s shocking new report that police are investigating whether Hernandez is connected to a 2012 double homicide, and I don’t want the team I root for to have anything to do with Hernandez anymore. Because right now he looks like a guy who is on the fast track to life in prison."
