Gerald Laird, you have some explaining to do ...

There's absolutely no excuse for missing a sporting event you have tickets to. None.

You're sick? Take some medicine. You have kids? Get a babysitter. The babysitter's sick? Find another babysitter.

What's that, Gerald Laird? You're playing in Game 4 of the World Series?

Okay, we'll give you a pass on that Cowboys-Rams game this Sunday. Just this one time, though.
