Retired NFL'er's Unfortunate Phrasing Tarnishes Hall of Fame Selection

Retired NFL tight end Mark Chmura was inducted into the special Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame on Saturday despite a career that was tarnished by a sexual assault allegation. Chmura called this the "icing on the cake" of his football life.

No one involved in a sexual assault case should be using the terms "icing" or "cake" to describe anything much less in a public forum especially considering the alleged sexual act with a 17-year-old occurred at a party.

Chmura was cleared of all the charges, but he needs to stop using suggestive phrases that lead the Packers Hall of Fame committee to question their decision. All in all, things could have been worse. He could have said "pie." That would be worse because that doesn't make any sense. No one puts icing on pie nearly enough in America. Surely because it would be too rich for the average tongue, but also because it's incredibly inappropriate. If the gluttons of the pie world know this, why doesn't a retired NFL player? Oh right, the concussions... Well, that ended on a bitter note, time for some icing covered pie!
