I never know how to feel about this kind of thing. Sometimes it comes out "We are just like everyone else, but maybe even more so!" Other times, the message is more "We are different, and absolutely very UNIQUE!" Mitt was the former. Conference is always the latter. And the athletes? More power to them, but there won't be a dime in it for them until they can (and if) they make the "big time" and sign with those nasty people, the pro leagues.

It puzzles me how people assume athletes are in it only for the money. Of course, if that substantiates a cynical outlook on life, what can we say? But then the whole article is no about how we are just like everyone else only different or the same. It was a feature on two returned missionaries who got featured in publications outside of Utah. It is hard to know how that is a cause for concern.
