Horrified Observers of Pedestrian Entertainment: Profile in Courage : Rob Bell




Profile in Courage : Rob Bell

Sometimes here at H.O.P.E. we wonder if there's really no "hope" in sight. We get a little down in the dumps, and we kick a can around the dirt backlot of H.O.P.E. headquarters. We have a beer or two and lament to one another. We wonder whether or not there really is a bright future out there, beyond all the smog. You know what we come up with?

YES THERE IS HOPE! Every day people are choosing to not participate in the mindless gerbil-wheel of consuming entertainment that will make them boring and stupid. Every single day there are people that suddenly realize that their old mix tape is way better than their Maroon5 CD, or that they shouldn't have wasted any money going to go see Fat Albert.

There are victories every single day out there, and sometimes we overlook them. That's why we've decided to have a semi-regular entry here at H.O.P.E. that highlights the noteworthy actions that make our world a better place. (entertainment-wise). Through action or inaction, these heroes are doing what it takes to reclaim our dignity.

The H.O.P.E Profile in Courage this week recognizes Rob Bell. You may know him from his semi-obscure place in the Devil Ray's lineup. He's a mediocre pitcher (8-8, 4.46 ERA) on a sub-mediocre team. You know what that means? That's right, they offered him to be the new bachelor on The Bachelor. Apparently, the potential dynamics of the Bachelor have not yet been fully explored. Another seasons must ensue, and they wanted our man Rob.

You know what Rob Bell told those bastards!? He told them NO! He stood up to their money and fame and refused to make some retarded garbage in his spare time. It is said that he feared "too much exposure". Bless you Robert Allen Bell. Bless you.
