A good ESPN.com article on "Dangerous Morons"
[url=http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2/story?page=pearlman/070605&sportCat=mlb]ESPN - Page 2 : Sheffield is one dangerous moron[/url]

I don't really know where this should fit on our board, but I thought one part would have been great in the thread that dealt with Portis' comments on dog fighting.

[QUOTE]This is how it's worked in the sports media for eons: We bitch and moan that players are little more than mantra-spewing robots. We long for a guy who'll speak his mind. We find a guy who speaks his mind. We rush toward him. He speaks his mind. He's a dangerous moron who says inane things like, "Where I'm from, you can't control us" and "If you're equally good as this Latin player, guess who's going to get sent home?" We excitedly work our butts off to try to coerce him to say even more inane things (Oldest trick of the trade: Start with softball questions, transition slyly into the hard stuff). He does. Then we hang him.
Well, I'm no longer playing that game...[/QUOTE]

I wish more sports reporters would take this to heart. I rarely care what athletes or celebrities think and I'm sick of having to hear about it.
I'm convinced that reporters ask these people questions that could possibly lead to dangerous answers because they want the controversy.
I blame the internet! (Damn Al Gore)

Ok, that is all.

I invented the game Red Rover while at summer camp in 1988, but it was originally intended to be much more violent.
It was changed after just one week because it lead to three broken jaws, 18 chipped teeth, 4 broken noses, 9 torn labrums, and 2 cases of hysterical pregnancy.
My parents are still paying off that civil suit. :(
