What It Looks Like When the Whole Team's Winning
To that end, it can be really easy to chalk up new successes as things that were going to happen at best or insignificant at worst. Listening to my boy’s accomplishments that day made me realize that it’s important to really appreciate what we’ve done and what it took to get here because it may be awesome, but it isn’t necessarily “just another Tuesday.” Getting the opportunity to lift up the homies and appreciate the successes is a gift.

If CTG is guilty of what his accuser says, whether or not he was convicted, one can only hope that he’ll get his karma. The courts aren’t reopening his case for legal reasons. But the court of public opinion is just as damaging. Oddly though, Angela Rye will probably pay more for what CTG allegedly did than he will because she decided to wade into a pool that isn’t hers.
