The more I watch athletic events, the more I have to bitch about. This will be the first installment in a series called “Gripes.”
Joey Dorsey got exactly what he deserved last night. The Big L. I don’t know why it is so unbelievably difficult for players to keep their mouths shut and expressions to themselves and represent their institutions with dignity and grace. Apparently, Mr. Dorsey, (who I hope doesn’t read this), decided it was a good idea to flash the choke sign at the Kansas bench toward the end of the game. Yea, the Kansas bench–the 2008 NCAA Champion Jayhawks. Them. The winner. How did that turn out? Well, you embarrassed yourself, your teammates, your alumni base, your fans, your coach (riiiiiiiiiiiiight), etc. And to make it worse, you lost the game.
I would be remiss to not mention the intentional shouldering of Cole Aldrich. This actually might be a little harsh, but it could have been far less emphatic. The statement was clear, though. “I just shouldered the &*(^ out of you, and I don’t give a *&^*.” Noted. In the loss column.
So, what’ll it be today at the Jayhawk Cafe, Mr. Dorsey? Karma or irony? To go with your big ass side of L.
***A special shout-out to the 2007 Bengals. Already signed for the Longest Yard III, obviously.
