Words

“If you aint cheatin’ you aint tryin'”… “it’s only illegal if you get caught”… “No harm.. No foul”…
These three little phrases raise the hair on the back of my neck.  They are attitudes that while seem harmless, they dictate an attitude that it’s ok to do wrong.
Last night I was at a Super Bowl party and heard one of these little phrases.  With a chuckle and a smile the person saying it followed it up with..”That’s how we roll”… ha ha…
I wonder if they really believe that.. or are just trying to be funny.  But then I go back to an old truth that has proven itself over and over again.  That is the fact that the first thing out of your mouth is the truth.  The mind is not quick to lie and usually those things that are said first, without thought, are what the person is really thinking.  And so… that is “How they roll”.
So, if it’s only illegal if you get caught.. then don’t get caught, right?  After all.. that’s how you roll.  OR… don’t do illegal things, play dirty, commit fouls (both off and on the field) and you don’t have to worry about being caught.
Ok.. here it comes.. and you knew it was on the way..
The Oath and Law… dang.. those two always ruin the fun…
But that’s how we roll.
Have a Great Scouting Day!
