I'm not a basketball fan, at least not on TV. Basketball is lumped in with baseball for me in that I love to go to games, but find it exceedingly boring to watch on TV.
So I missed this the other day:
When freshman point guard Angel Rodriguez stepped to the free throw line in the first half, some members of the band began to chant, "Where's your green card?" Rodriguez is a Puerto Rico native.Since they acted like trolls and embarrassed their university, I'm not surprised to learn that several of these cretins have lost their band scholarships and have been forced to sit in the "you said a bad thing" class.
For once, I'm not going to shriek about political correctness run amok. These aren't students who are being penalized for expressing views that are looked down upon by their faculty. These schmucks decided to act like, well, schmucks on national TV while representing their school and being paid to do it. So having their inability to control themselves and act right in public should come back to bite them on the tuckus. To me, they were being paid to sit in the stands, play some annoying songs, and show the colors for the school. Instead they acted like trash and now they're being reminded that trash doesn't get to sit in the stands and toot a horn for pay.
I hope they enjoy washing dishes to make up the difference in their educational/beer budgets. Maybe they'll learn a little humility and how to act.
