Monday Night Quickie & Marcus Smart

Just a quick post since the blog has not been active the past week ...

After a trip to Las Vegas, a bad week with a cold and then catching up on work, my life is still not yet quite back on track. Work keeps me busy with new challenges almost every day, and dang -- I need to catch up.

Sickness seems to go hand in hand with the extremely cold weather this winter. Just as I was getting well my wife and daughter got sick. Daughter recovered after a few days, but my wife was sicker than a dog for over a week. She is finally snapping out of it, though. My mom is currently in the hospital, which is always scary at her advanced age.

Marcus Smart

Every sports fan has likely seen the video of Oklahoma State University basketball player Marcus Smart shove a Texas Tech fan.

Granted, members of college basketball and other sports teams should have better control of their emotions. However, imagine giving your all on the floor, tumbling into the crowd (where two guys were actually helping Smart up), then having some jerkoff fan call you a piece of crap to your face. Yeah -- some stupid shit home town fan decided to play big man and yells at the college kid. The idiot deserved the push imo. Just show some class and don't embarrass the team you are rooting for. Great adult behavior.

Jeff Orr is lucky he didn't get punched... #goodtake Bundle up - I hear that Illinois gets almost as cold as Austin... ;)

Jeff Orr crossed the line when he called Smart a piece of crap. Marcus Smart crossed the line when he shoved Orr. Marcus Smart compounded the problem and poured fuel on a fire that doesn't need stoking when he claimed after the game that Orr had used a racial slur.

In my opinion the two offenses in the heat of the moment are understandable and easily forgivable for both parties. I can't really forgive, however, straight up lying to try to cover for your initial mistake by playing the race card.

JT, I hold a "mature" adult fan to a higher standard than a teenage athlete. Orr is a d-bag and has been doing this for years, I hear. However, you do make an excellent point about playing the race card.
