A touchy subject
Thursday, Mar 14, 2013
* When I saw the story this morning that Gov. Pat Quinn’s brother was fired as Fenwick’s head basketball coach, I felt for both men. Coach Quinn is, by all accounts, a heckuva guy, a great teacher and a solid coach. And his brother is understandably proud of him.
I decided not to do a cheap post and mock either man just for the sake of some ironic comments about… well, whatever. I’m not going there.
But keeping in mind that we don’t know all the circumstances behind Coach Quinn’s firing, I still find it odd that Gov. Quinn would be so aggressive with his reaction today…
* Personal stuff should be kept personal. I really don’t like even thinking about things like this…
Despite the public commentary, let’s try to not get too outraged in comments here. Brothers defend brothers. I get to say whatever I want about mine, but you’d better not. Remember that, and that Coach Quinn may very well have been shabbily treated before you hit the “Say It” button below. Thanks.
