Editor Thoughts: I Pray

“Pray”

I just can’t sleep tonight.
Knowing that things ain’t right.
It’s in the papers, it’s on the TV, it’s everywhere that I go.
Children are crying.
Soldiers are dying.
Some people don’t have a home.

But I know there’s sunshine beyond that rain
I know there’s good times behind that pain
Hey, can you tell me how I can make a change?

I close my eyes and I can see a better day
I close my eyes and pray
I close my eyes and I can see a better day
I close my eyes and pray

I lose my appetite
Knowing kids starve tonight.
Am I a sinner ’cause half my dinner is still there on my plate?
Ooh, I got a vision to make a difference.
And it’s starting today.

‘Cause I know there’s sunshine beyond that rain
I know there’s good times behind that pain
Heaven, tell me I can make a change.

I close my eyes and I can see a better day
I close my eyes and pray
I close my eyes and I can see a better day
I close my eyes and…

I pray for the broken-hearted
I pray for the life not started
I pray for all the lungs not breathing.
I pray for all the souls that need a break.
Can you give ‘em one today?

I just can’t sleep tonight.
Can someone tell me how to make a change?

I close my eyes and I can see a better day
I close my eyes and pray
I close my eyes and I can see a better day
I close my eyes and I pray (oh)

I pray
I pray

I close my eyes and pray

Both Steelers Running Backs Arrested for Hotboxing Car Together

Chalk another two up to the NFL and its antiquated marijuana policies. Steelers starting running backs Le’Veon Bell and LeGarrette Blount were arrested together today in Ross, Pennsylvania because their car was overflowing with smoke.

Steelers RB Le’Veon Bell & RB LeGarrette Blount charged by Ross Twp Police today w marijuana poss. Bell also charged w DUI after stop today.

— Colin Dunlap (@colin_dunlap) August 20, 2014

According to reports, the dynamic were in possession of 20 grams of marijuana when a traffic cop noticed blunt smoke bellowing from the vehicle. The Blunt Brothers were accompanied by a female companion, who was cited for two grams during this rare daytime NFL pot-bust.

As the Steelers brass envisioned this offseason, their version of Indica (Blount) and Sativa (Bell) have developed a unique chemistry and are willing to share the bowl (and more) with one another.

More importantly, Blount and Bell join a growing, disconcerting amount of NFL players arrested or suspended for pot-related offenses this off-season, which by my count, is now up to at least seven total (Josh Gordon, LaVon Brazil, Will Hill, Daryl Washington, and Justin Blackmon).

Those aforementioned players will (with the exception of Gordon) all miss the entire 2014 NFL season. This pair of Steelers, however, probably won’t be suspended for marijuana by the NFL…until the 2015 season.

Meanwhile, “hey diddle diddle Ray Rice up the elevator shaft” will return to action week three.
