Dealing with football losses

Posted in Sportson Oct 15, 2008

I saw this police beat under the heading, Disorderly Conduct:

Oct. 11: A University of New Mexico football player, unhappy with the outcome of the game, had to be restrained by his coach and fellow players and helped onto the bus after kicking a door.

Has this kid never lost before, or was he happy with the outcomes of those games?  Seriously, if you are going to go to Provo to play a top-10 football team, there is one outcome that should be expected more than others: BYU wins.  I know this must be a less-desireable outcome for New Mexico—it might even make a few unhappy.  

But most people don’t have to be restrained when they are unhappy.  Most people don’t go kicking doors.

Love it! I love the police beats. And also, you clearly have never seen me angry. I’m a big door kicker…no. Not true. Not even a little.
