We Can Be Heroes

Apologies to my vast readership for going quiet for so long.

Some folks are losing their excrement because ESPN gave out one of their ESPY Awards (I believe they were originally conceived as the BWNSTSOTDATASGWTIAEGOOOCWHTTANFLMCA* Awards) to Caitlyn Jenner for her courage in coming out as transgender.

*Boys, We Need Something To Show On The Day After The All Star Game When There Isn't Anything Else Going On Or, Oh Crap, We'll Have To Talk About NFL Mini-Camps Again

That brings us to This Week's Discussion Question:

When the hell did heroism become a zero-sum game?

Look, people do heroic stuff all the time. Small, quiet acts of heroism and big, honkin' acts of heroism, every damn day and somebody doing the latter doesn't make the former acts any less heroic.

Please keep the discussion civil and do not wander off into "If you think this makes ESPN look bad, do you realize that they point a camera at Stephen A. Smith on a regular basis?" or "Is it too early in the day to start drinking?"
