Aaron Hernandez And His Sad End

1

Tattle Tales

I’m not a football fan. I mean, as a New Englander it’s mandatory I root for the Patriots when they’re in the Super Bowl, and believe it or not I do understand football. Aaron Hernandez is a sad, cautionary tale perhaps, but definitely a study in what not to do when you make it out of the hood.

He was from Bristol, CT, which is about 20 miles outside of Hartford and not a “hood” by any means but not immune to gang activity. Hernandez was allegedly a member of the Bloods, and didn’t leave his connections behind when he made it to the NFL. Allegedly. He showed up at his latest court case just days ago with a brand new neck tattoo symbolizing the Bloods. Allegedly.

Doing a life bid with no parole for shooting and killing his friend, and just beating a double murder rap, Hernandez hung himself…

Could you imagine the dude, who told Amelia Earhart that she couldn’t fly solo over the Atlantic? Or the publisher who thought Emily Dickinson’s work wasn’t shit. How about the doctor, who told Helen Keller that due to her handicaps, she will not to amount to anything in this life. How about that white bus driver telling Rosa Parks to sit at the back of the bus? Clearly, these women did not give a fuck about these people’s opinions and did not care what they were told they could or could not do. These women saw the bigger picture in each deviant case. They were going to do what they wanted to do regardless if people liked it or not. These women played an important part in history, of which you can add Ronda Rousey to that list.
Ronda-Rousey-Judo-Gold

Even if you’re a novice UFC fan, you still know that name Ronda Rousey. She started her career as Olympic Judo practitioner. She medaled at the 2008 Olympic games, earning a bronze medal but she felt disappointed about not getting the gold. Afterwards, she took some time off to figure out what she wanted to do in her life. There wasn’t a female division in the UFC back then. So, Ronda did what everyone else did, try to live a normal life. She got an apartment, got a dog, and got a job (bartender). She was normal and lost, like the rest of us. Like everyone’s dream in Los Angeles, it starts to fade into the twilights and becomes shadows of the Hollywood Hills.

Then along came Strikeforce, an MMA upstart that tired to compete with the UFC. Strikeforce had a couple of talented mixed martial artists but not like the UFC. I thought the best part of Strikeforce was the women’s division. It was the first time I have ever seen a women’s division in MMA. Most of the time the women’s matches were generally more entertaining then the main event, unless the main event were women. It was also the first time I saw women being the main event and they killed it. This is where Ronda Rousey time into the fray. The first time I saw Ronda was before the fight, when she walked into the cage. She looked like a female lioness that just lost a cub. She was angry and pissed. She had that expressionless hundred-yard stare. She wanted that cub back. She wanted that glory back and she was willing to go through every female to get that dream back.

As soon as the round started, Rousey’s opponent was already tapping from Ronda’s signature submission move, the armbar. Me and the rest of the world just had that “Oh, Shit” moment. Where just witnessed something phenomenal and we knew that Rousey was going to be a force in women’s MMA. In no time, she beat every opponent in front of her and had her shot at the Strikeforce female championship. Before the fight, Ronda thought about her disappointment at the Olympic games and made a decision that she will never go through that again. Just like every fight before the championship fight, it ended the same way with an armbar and Ronda’s hand raised in victory. She was a champion, but was it enough?

Even with the women’s success in Strikeforce there was still no support in putting a women’s division in the UFC. In an interview with Dana White, UFC’s president, Mr. White told the media and the world that there will never be a female fighter in the UFC. I just got to image Ronda Rousey in her living room with her dog, shining her newly won Strikeforce belt, hearing that awful word “no”. Just like in her fights, she started to throw punches back and began a Twitter campaign to Mr. White about she would be great for the UFC. She was relentless about telling Dana that she is the greatest female fighter ever. With the UFC’s merger and acquisitions of MMA companies including Strikeforce, Dana finally had to give Ronda a shot.

At UFC 157, there was an historic fight for the first women’s championship. It was between Ronda Rousey and Liz Carmouche but unlike Ronda’s fights this was not going to be easy. But in life, the things we want the most never come easy. So, when the fight started Ronda was already in trouble as Liz secured a back mount on Ronda, as she was about to choke her out and end Ronda’s dream. It was close, but not close enough. You can always figure out a person by the way they deal with adversity. Some people run away and some people stand their ground. It’s the difference between being remembered or forgotten. Ronda is a warrior. Ronda is Bushido.

Samurai

That “Oh, Shit”  moment came back again as Ronda escaped from Liz’s hold and got on top. Everyone knew the end was near and before the round ended, she put her patented move on Liz and the dream continued. She became the first women’s champion in UFC history and automatically gave millions of women around the world another opportunity at something besides being a housewife. But with success comes haters. Being the first one through the door, it always gets bloody.

Ronda Rousey vs Miesha Tate

After defending her title at UFC 168 against Meisha Tate with her unstoppable finishing move, Ronda heard something different from the cheers she got from her last win. The boo owls were out and they were booing Ronda, after not shaking hands with Tate after the match. This is my opinion about MMA, it is a sport and it is not as barbaric as it once was back in the day but it is not like any other sports. These men and women have to fight each other for a living. I believe in sportsmanship like everyone else but you gained respect as soon as you stepped into the cage. I am always amazed when fighters shake hands or even when they hug before they beat the shit out of each other. I mean that’s nice and all but let’s face folks, we watch these athletes because they are trying to end each other in devastating fashion. We want to see blood and broken bones. We are living the in Roman Empire right now and we want to be entertained.

In the curious case of Ronda, well, that’s just Ronda. She didn’t feel like shaking her hand. Just because she is the champ and famous now, she is not going to change because a couple of people are booing. She is going to be herself regardless of what people think of her. This weekend at UFC 175 in Las Vegas, I am assuming the boo owls will be out in force with the fight between Ronda Rousey and Alexis Davis for the women’s championship belt. But knowing Ronda, she’ll have that hundred-yard stare, looking like a hungry lion and being totally focused on her opponent. As the crowd will shower her with boos and taunts, which I really don’t think Ronda gives two fucks about. And why should she? She has become successful like every other female mentioned in this article by not giving a fuck about other people’s opinions. If you want to become something great sometimes people will not understand it and will undermine you because they don’t have your vision. Stop caring what the fuck people think and become the next Ronda Rousey!

By the way, Earhart was the first woman to fly solo over the Atlantic, Dickinson is one the most famous female authors of all-time, Helen Keller became a teacher and Rosa Parks started a revolution. What have you’ve done?
