BJ'S BLOG 03/04/16 "Kam At The Gym"

March 4, 2016

Here’s a ridiculous news item for your unenjoyment, my dear Rock-A-Holics…
 
Seahawks safety Kam Chancellor is looking to buy a gym, following the success of his “boot camps”, where he works out with fans. Kam and a couple of buddies recently stopped by the Redmond Athletic Club, which is currently looking to lease out; the gym was closed –it was just shortly after 5 PM - but Kam noticed people inside, and tried to engage them by looking through the window.
 
Two female employees inside called the cops, believing that Kam was going to break in and rob the place. The police showed up, and everything worked out just fine. Our Seahawk took it in stride, sharing the experience on Twitter:
 
“The funniest thing just happened too me in Redmond. I went to go get info on a gym that was closed and 2 ladies called the cops on me”
 
“They told the cops I was trying to rob the place because I was looking into the glass asking for help. I took a picture of the two employees”
 
“Good thing the cops know I'm a good guy and stealing isn't in my blood. I work for everything I get”
 
“I guess I won't put a gym in Redmond then. I'm not qualified. I want to post her face so bad on the phone looking disgusted.”
 
(That’s @Kam_Chancellor, if you’d like to follow him.)
 
I have to wonder why these women jumped to such a severe conclusion. Was it racially motivated, or have we become such a society of fear that we just automatically assume the worst about anyone? As a nation, we are safer than we ever have been in history. That’s a fact, folks! You can Google it for yourself.
 
To the two gym employees who caused this nonsense: YOU’RE IDIOTS.
 
What do you think, gang?
