Where the rubber meets the road

What really bothers me in the Cliff Harris situation and related discipline issues can be summed up in a quote from Steve Prefontaine.

"To give anything less than your best is to sacrifice the gift."

Cliff Harris is one of the most gifted athletes Duck fans have ever seen. On Sunday morning, he came close to wasting his life and the lives of two others.

Todd Doxey's life ended in a tragic accident. Cliff is on a collision course with a tragic waste of amazing ability and charisma.

Here's hoping his family or his coach really gets through to him before that happens.  Maybe someone should take him to the corner where Prefontaine himself died.
