New England Patriots Quarterback Matt Cassel is being hailed for his performance just six days after his father’s death, leading his team to a 49-26 victory.
I’m curious: would the reaction have been as positive if the headlines had been, “Cassel Skips Game to Mourn Father’s Death”? Shouldn’t that be the headline we want and the action we truly honor?
