Bishop Ainge Takes in His Troubled Nephew

It’s not often that I get to talk about sports on my blog.  I came across this interesting article about Erik and Danny Ainge.  Erik is a backup quarterback for the New York Jets, and former starting quarterback for the University of Tennessee.  I was surprised to learn that his uncle Danny is currently serving as bishop in Wellesley, Massachusetts, while working as President of the Boston Celtics.  I had no idea Danny was a bishop.

Erik admitted to using all sorts of drugs since the age of 11.  He is currently in drug rehab in the Boston area, and Danny has opened his home.  While it is sad that Erik has screwed up his life so bad, I am impressed that Danny has taken Erik into his home and assisted with his rehab.  I don’t think I would be so open with a relative with such a serious problem.  I’m greatly impressed with Danny’s service to Erik.
