Via CNNSI: Source Story
Now, I rarely watch football myself, but I found this story being filed in the “awww, ain’t that sweet” section of my brain.
A judge increased jail time from six months to five years for the brother of Pittsburgh Steelers safety Tyrone Carter because he failed to report to prison on time for driving with a revoked license.
Tank Carter, brother of this football player, sacrificed (more of) his freedom to go watch his brother play some big time football, and win! Instead of spending six months in the slammer, Carter now gets to spend five years. Ok, so between the choice of having to watch a family member perform some game or act in a live performance from a prision cell, knowing I could probably congratulate them the next day, or watching them live, and spending four more years behind bars? I think I’d choose the former option. Just my opinion.
