Why Blake? Why?
So with the who, what, when and where out of the way, that leads us back to why. And we may never know the answer. It was a random act of stupidity. It was a dumb and dumber, foolish and fatheaded, witless and doltish deed that deserves detention. And detention he will get because he’ll be out for 4-6 weeks because of his broken hand. Is that punishment enough? Maybe not. But it’s a start.
In a tweet, Blake apologized and spoke of working towards a “resolution.” Resolution? You have a broken hand and your friend has a broken face. What’s the resolution to that other than healing and soothing and restoration and . . . oh that’s it: restitution. Pay the flunky off and he’ll shut up and everything will go back to normal. Because punching someone out in any other world is called assault. Or did I miss something?
So, let’s hope that Blake will take the time to wash off the slime and grime of his crime. In the meantime, he needs to use his downtime to shake off this hopefully onetime offence. Hopefully, when and if any one of the rest of us commits a mistake the size of the one Mr. Blake just made, we apologize to and empathize with the one we offended, and quickly.
