my two cents on kobe
Whether he raped the girl or not, one fact remains. He was screwing around on his wife. Gee, what a shock. A rich, young sports star fooling around. I am simply stunned.
Now, if I were his wife, you can bet your championship ring that I would not be standing up there with Kobe, holding his hand and supporting him.
"Because I know him to be innocent, I will stand by him and we will face this together. … I know Kobe better than anyone. The great person you see on the court and in the public is a far greater person off the court."
Yes. A far greater person who sleeps with women besides his wife. Call me cynical, but do you really think this is the first time it's happened?
I'd be smacking him upside his head with a size 22 Nike right about now. I'll tolerate a lot of things in a marriage. Adultery is not one of them. It's the ultimate betrayal.
Wait, I need to make a phone call.
Hello, Mrs. Bryant? I'm going to patch you through to Hillary now.
[note: I have no judgment on whether Kobe is guilty of rape or not. Not enough evidence to go either way. I'll leave that one to the detectives]
