When I think of embarrassment caused by the internet and its 24-7 coverage of people’s lives, my thoughts immediately turn to Reggie Love. Love, who was at Duke at the time I was in law school, was likely my favorite person on the Duke basketball team, only because he was the only one I met. On a team full of dorks, Reggie had a personality and found a way to dunk on me on more than one occasion at the student campus center. But the internet gave Reggie some difficulty when pictures showing him drunk at a college party (and with some…well, embarrassing stuff on his face) came out and caused him to be casualty #1 of the cell phone camera world. But now Reegie has resurfaced, and according to the New York Times, he is Barack Obama’s “right-hand man” on the campaign trail, keeping his schedule and helping him with his personal needs…..aka the “Charlie” role from the West Wing.
Its good to see that Reggie has persevered and overcome that early disappointment….I guess it wont be long before we find out that Kyle Orton will be joining the John McCain campaign….
