    Boy, that was a tough read. This story brings to light why Mark needs to be in a hospital environment. I can't help feeling sorry for him.

    Wow, what a read.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Re: ESPN Article about Mark Becker

    This is really well written. Truly tells a lot of the story. He truly was a great kid, smiled all the time, loved his family and his big brother a lot. Part of me wishes he would be going to a mental facility, but also see the other side as well.

    It makes you understand and feel very sorry for Mark Becker. The guy was obviously very ill. Frankly, the guy belongs in a hospital not a jail.

    Re: ESPN Article about Mark Becker

    So long as the guy never steps foot in public again I'd have no problem with him going to a mental health facility.
