We Have Seen the LeBron

Pogo said, "We have seen the enemy, and he is us!"

LeBron James will announce his decision regarding his future during a Live 1-hour television broadcast tonight on ESPN. Many quickly and conveniently point to their disdain for such a display of ego, arrogance, and hubris by the self-monikered Chosen 1, as he has tattooed across his back. But the source of the problem is that the very people who complain about the presence of birds continue to feed them.

It makes about as much sense as complaining about the grocery store tabloids' salacious front page headlines. We live in a capitalist, consumer-based society. The point is this: If we could not or would not financially support the industry of celebrity, it would cease to exist.

Complaining about the fevered pitch of anticipation regarding LeBron's decision is like jumping on a Pogo-stick: Though you create a bit of a spectacle, it wastes alot of energy...and in the end, you don't really get anywhere!
