    This is a sad one to view. Hopefully, he'll be able to learn from this.

    I don't know. it doesn't sound like a particularly tough question. Do you confront an ex-girlfriend in the lobby of her apartment building, repeatedly kicking and punching her or you let whatever's been bugging you slide?

    I know it's a cliche but maybe he'll have a chance to learn from an abusive boyfriend of his own in years to come.

    How long was Mariotti's prison sentence?

    Enjoyed that video. Nothing wrong with seeing a notably large man, who would assault a woman, cry a bit.

    I particularly enjoyed the first sentence of that blog:

    "Instead of sifting through scholarship offers, selecting a school and launching his college basketball career as he originally planned, an Ohio high school standout will have to put his dreams on hold."

    Awwwwwww, poor thing.

    That's if any school will have him on their teams, although I could see someone "taking a chance so he can rebuild his life."

    Can't stop watching this thing.

    Love how he goes from "OK, I'm listening to the judge, hoping and thinking I won't get anything too bad" to "What!??! I got three years!!??!!?" to "OK . . . three plus two is five . . ." to "Three plus two plus two is . . . oh SH--!!!!!!!! Uuuugggghhhhhhhh.. . . . . . . . ."

    Those on-the-spot math skills would have served him well at a Big Ten school.

    Really. This is why people rip "the liberal media."

    Not only is it a cliche, it's also a cliched rape joke! And rape jokes are always funny!

    That video will not serve him well in jail. He might be big, but he's going to be someone's bitch.

    He'll make a great addition to one of the prison basketball teams.

    California Penal has a better RPI.

    That reminds me of that scene in "Malcolm X" where Malcolm and Shorty are handcuffed together as the judge read off a bunch of counts of 7-14 year sentences that are going to be served concurrently. Then Shorty passes out because he doesn't know what "concurrently" meant.
