Colin Kaepernick is, without question, a douche, but you can learn an important lesson by not being him
Kaepernick’s in trouble for wearing a Dolphins hat on the Fourth of July. This is obviously an affront to all 49ers fans who expect their hired gun to show unflinching loyalty. What 49ers fans don’t realize, however, is that Kaepernick’s showing more than just disloyalty with that hat.
The Dolphins are famous for Dan Marino, who made it to the Superbowl in his second season, lost, and never returned. Colin Kaepernick just made it to the Superbowl in his second season, lost, then got caught wearing a Dolphins hat. He’s not showing disloyalty, he’s trying to convey a prophecy: if he stays with the 49ers, they will never go to another Superbowl.
You can learn from this. If the CEO of Hollister ever gets convicted of rape, which, you know, might happen, don’t go out wearing a Hollister shirt the next day. You’re prophesying your criminal intent. If your buddy gets his girlfriend pregnant and then gets suckered into keeping it, don’t start wearing a “world’s greatest dad” shirt yourself.
Learn from Colin. Don’t be Colin.
