Santonio Holmes has been a royal asshat.
You know I think this and you have thought it too, despite his claims that not one Burgher has given him any negative feedback.
Today’s news reports are further confirming that Hines Ward has taken Santonio from under the wing of Ben Roethlisberger, where Santonio had forcefully been kept against his will for some time now, and placed him under his own happy wing.
And not just in name only. Hines has been practicing every day after practice with Santonio in an effort to help him up his game.
And then check this out:
“I’m doing very well. The coaches are satisfied with my performance. I think I feel comfortable with the way everything is going. But I still have a lot of learning to do.”
Did he just say “I still have a lot of learning to do?” That sounds like humility and do you know where humility comes from? Maturity! Bravo, Santonio. Painting those churches has really helped you. No one can bring the good and humility out of a person like Hines “I Shit Sunshine” Ward.
Hines also says:
“He’s a good kid,” Ward said. “He started off a little rocky with his off-the-field stuff, but he wants to have a clean slate. He’s really a great kid who wants to get better.”
Since I pretty much worship Hines Ward as my third religion behind sunshine and white chocolate, I’m going to give Santonio another chance.
I’m removing the Total Asshat label and replacing it with a 90% Asshat, 10% Acceptable label. Until he says or does his next shittastic thing, then I’ll smack that Total Asshat label back on him so fast he’ll be forever marked with the imprint of my palm.
