Cardale Jones is a freshman quarterback for the Ohio State University Buckeyes football team.
I suppose he can throw a football well, being a QB at a Big-10 school and all, but he's evidently a bit deficient in other areas (like intellect). Cardale recently tweeted (his account has since been deactivated) the following giving his feelings about time-wasting pursuits off the field.
I suppose English class could have taught this dumb ass how to spell his name consistently, since he spells it "Cordale" on Facebook and "Cardale" on Twitter, but that's trivial. Perhaps we could talk about how Cardale plays for a team that is currently under NCAA sanctions for various ethics violations of coaches, players, and community boosters. Ethics, what's that?
Which contributes more to society?
It's unfortunate that our society values people who can throw and catch balls far more highly than educators. I was born lacking that male gene which makes one want to watch guys run around messing with balls so I've never understood the attraction of organized sports.
Anyway, I've been also been feeling particularly frustrated with some students at my community college lately and I have to say I agree with Cardale. Classes are pointless for people who have the intellectual curiosity of a turnip. Go toss your ball Cardale. Good luck and I hope a hard hit by a linebacker doesn't put an abrupt end to your football career. If so, McDonalds is always hiring. I doubt you're qualified for anything else given that you're squandering a full scholarship at an excellent university. Which is really a shame since I personally know excellent students who would love to attend a place like OSU, and actually learn something, but can't afford the tuition.
