Never Die Alone

I watched the movie, “Never Die Alone”, on HBO. It’s about a drug dealer who leaves a trail of broken people in his wake. Eventually he’s killed by a young man who turns out to be his son. The son didn’t know he was this drug dealer’s son until after he kills him.

The drug dealer had killed his mother by using battery corrosion in place of heroin. She had been “clean” for six weeks, then he gives her the fake heroin after she’s threatened to go to the police on him. She and her kids had no food and she needed money. After beating her and her son, the drug dealer departs. Later, she shoots up with the fake heroin and dies in front of her children.

Drugs are a bitch.

Fascinating. I hardly ever watch movies. I found this one interesting because of the impact a person can have on others through words and deeds. In this case, it was an extremely negative impact. It’s amazing to me because the same people can have impact in a positive manner; they just choose not to do so. Chemical dependency isn’t just on the chemical. It’s a dependency on people who don’t give a damn about the person with whom they are involved. The addict needs that fix worse than anything.

Its terribly sad.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
