Michael Irvin was slated to make the keynote address at the annual fundraiser for Texas-based nonprofit, Worth the Wait, this month in Amarillo.
As you can probably guess from its title, the program’s mission is to preach abstinence while educating adolescents and adults on the consequences of teen sexual activity. In light of Irvin’s recent news spree, they felt it would be in bad form to have an alleged rapist give a 15-minute speech on safe sex. So they decided to reschedule and look for a new role model.
Wouldn’t it be devastating if, while Worth the Wait searches for another football star to be the new face of abstinence, the lack of funds raised leads to an increased loss of Texan teen virginity? In the meantime, I’m proud of my darkhorse pick for not only exceeding expectations, but also for scoring a Delonte West Factor by bringing hilarity to the situation. I mean, honestly, did Worth the Wait’s board of directors REALLY consider Irvin to be the Tim Tebow of Texas?
