A place for the discussion of all things not closely related to the sport and its competitive side. (as always, locked for the duration of major international championship)

I'm skeptical. You've never heard of big boned?


And since Big Daddy Lipscome went from being the biggest pro around to not being able to crack the lineup at numerous colleges, including our local one, there has been vast genetic change in the human population, right? 8-) :( [not clear if you were in need of clarifying smilies]


Oh yes, the more the better !

You can't make a silk purse out of a sow's ear.

Having said that, I never cease to be astounded that young scholar (???)-athletes, given a golden opportunity to receive a college education, can throw it all completely away, many times ending up in prison, and ruining whatever chance they had for a half decent future.

No sympathy here from me. But I can't call them thugs as that is not politically correct any more. So I'll just call them worthless stupid human beings.

I didn't say they were street thugs, only they had the same morals, though in this case the description might be apt.

    Williams, for what it's worth, might not be the greatest dude. This was his second arrest in three days. On Sunday, according to police, he refused to pay for his gas, and threatened the station attendant by mentioning he had something in his trunk. Police say they stopped him shortly thereafter and found an unlicensed pistol in his pants pocket, a crime which appears to be no more serious in Alabama than a moving violation. He was released after paying $500 bond.

As for wasting an college education, I suspect that opportunity disappeared years before, when they were never held accountable in high school, as long as they played well.
