you're a good man, charlie batch
Reading the sports pages these days can be a lot like reading the police blotter. The sense of entitlement and disregard for common decency from some athletes is disturbing, given their status as de facto role models for kids. Obviously, of course, not all of them are bad guys, no matter how many bad-guy stories we have to read. And some, like Steelers backup quarterback Charlie Batch, a local kid from Homestead, are good guys, as this story in today's Pittsburgh Post-Gazette clearly demonstrates. Good for him.
