When You’re Too Old for Childish Stuff

Yesterday, Deion Sanders took to Twitter to tell the world that his wife and her friend attacked him in his house. He even twitpic’ed a picture of him and the boys filling out a police report.


*Le Sigh*

I don’t know what I’m more upset about. The fact that he used social media to tell the world that his wife jacked him up. The fact that he took a picture for proof. The fact that his kids took to twitter to pop off. You know I can reason (a little bit) with the tweet from him and the picture. I’m thinking that if he would have came forward and said it, people might not believe him. So if he’s reporting live, in the moment, on twitter, then it’s a little more believable. Right? Maybe? Am I reaching?

Here’s what I’m most upset about. Deion is like 44,45 years old. Pilar is what? 38? ¬†Doesn’t that make them too grown for this nonsense? Twitter or no twitter. I know love can make people do some crazy things and divorce is not for the weak-hearted. I know people who were so in love one day and the next day, they can’t stand the thought of the other person. Relationships, marriage, divorce are hard enough as is but when you bring external factors (i.e. the Twitter world, other people) things just amplify.

But for dignity sake, for their kids sake, can they just act like grown-ups?
