Subtle slights

ray rice 2The following comment was made by the commentators during the first half of today’s Ravens vs. Patriots game.

Ray Rice is short but he’s not small.

Now I realize that the comment was meant as a compliment to Ray Rice, an outstanding and 5’8″ athlete but there is a subtle slight in suggesting that short would not normally be good.  Here at Shortees we contend that short is not just good, its great.  Yes while athletes overall are getting bigger and bigger we are also seeing an abundance of spectacular all stars who are 5’8″ and under.  Lionel Messi, Ray Rice, Darren Sproles, Maurice Jones-Drew and many more.

Get with it commentators.  Its time to stop thinking it is something special and unique for an athlete to be short and start putting everyone on an even level.
