HAVING A MELT DOWN

 



     This was not a regular coach melt down. Mike Gundy used his platform or pulpit as a college coach to try and wake up some people about media coverage and our general problems. The newspaper reported a player was scared to play or something to that affect, the article questioned the players heart. The reporter was more concerned about getting a sensational story than reporting the facts. Much like American news. The bubble boy media will disregard the success of the players off the field and sometimes on as well. Stories of players graduating and living successful lives on and off the court are rarely front page news. But how many times have we seen some athlete or celebrity be the head story for getting busted with drugs or other salacious stories. The man is rightfully angry, we do not have news in America, we have infotainment. 

       I was picking 4 winners for college football this Saturday and was thinking of some things my uncles were saying over the Labor Day BBQ. They made a friend out to be the enemy. They were complaining she had too much vacation, they complained she doesn't work hard enough. First of all, she has two kids, settle down. Slacking at a county job is the least of her problems. Her union negotiated a generous vacation schedule, what about your free market? The contract determined the price and vacation time right, you should be praising your free market. But my uncles, cried they don't deserve it!! Come on man, what about the guy getting paid a few billion dollar of a year by not letting poor people use his hospitals? They quickly changed the subject to more "pressing" issues like stateless terrorism and how all Muslims think Americans are infields and want to kill us. 


“Where our we at in society, come after me, I AM A MAN”

“THATS NOT TURE, so get your facts straight. And I hope someday you'll have a child and some body downgrades him and belittles him and you have to look him in the eye and say you know what, It's okay, they're supposed to be mature adults but they're really not. Whose the kid here? Whose the kid here? Are you kidding me? Thats all I got to say, makes me want to puke.
