What the hell is wrong with people? I mean really. We have kids (KIDS!) playing a game. And here we have adults threatening to kill referees? I often tell people that there is very little in life you should be “embarrassed about”. You hit a bad golf shot, who cares. You called a girl the wrong name on the 2nd date, it happens. Your potluck didn’t taste very good at the company party, such is life. Then we look at these Kentucky folks, and it takes embarrassment to a whole new level.
I bet I’m killing you with anticipation and questions, so let’s get into it. Let’s give this story some context on just how bad it is and why I’m so outraged.
First, let’s recall a few other similar stories…
I’ll never forgive the city of Chicago for the deplorable and disgusting behavior towards Steve Bartman when he tried to catch a ball and the city blamed the Cubs’ loss on him.
How about the Boston fans that vilified Bill Buckner when he made an error? That’s right, he made an error. And many of the sick lunatics of the general public made it out to seem as if he had committed a felony. Classy Boston fans at their finest!
But just when I thought that Boston and Chicago had topped the charts with ridiculously silly fans (not all, just those of you that participated in the madness) here comes the worst of them all. Kentucky “fans”. And I put it in quotes ‘cause these people need to get a grip. We have kids playing a game they love and these “fans” didn’t like the calls made by the refs. So what do they do? Threaten to kill referees? And ruin their businesses? Seems normal.
Sick, sick, sick people. Really. Get a grip and grow up.
And what’s this all about? It’s all about a frickin’ game. A game. Not life or death. Not my friend with cancer. Nobody committed a heinous crime against them. We’re simply talking about a game!
I think if they find the people that are doing this, they should haul their parents into a court or jurisdiction of some sort, and tell them they did a really poor job raising their children…and make them promise to never have any more. Because if my future children act like this, it will be the low point of my life and I will have failed.
Read on and try to internalize how crazy this is. I mean this is really, really crazy that grown people act like this. This 21st century mob mentality social media insanity is for lunatics and we need to realize this is not how we should conduct ourselves as human beings. If we were animals, maybe. And I mean maybe.
Let’s get a hold of ourselves people. These are games played by kids. Let’s lead by example for a better future, not be an embarrassment to the human race.
Hundreds of Kentucky fans’ threats against ref under investigation-
Interestingly, I also came across this article that made me think there is hope for humanity!!
