I think I have come up with a great idea, and it allows you to write for KSR! Frankly, I get bashed alot on this site. Sometimes it is legit (can’t really think of one right now), and most of the time it is not (i.e. Shaq and Vick and Billy G). But I understand that I play my role as the black sheep on this site and I am willing to put my full opinion in my posts, and take the criticism that comes with that. My only problem with you readers is that you find it easy to call me an idiot while NEVER disproving my points. And because I am not going to do nerd fights, I just leave it alone.
Well, I think the best thing to do is allow you to put YOUR full opinion out there, and let the KSR dogs released on you, no Michael Vick jokes needed. So, here is what I want you to do:
PICK A TOPIC (SPORTS OR OTHERWISE) THAT IS NOT KENTUCKY ATHLETICS RELATED. SOMETHING YOU HAVE A STRONG OPINION ABOUT. AND SEND ME AN EMAIL ([email protected]) WITH YOUR ARGUMENT. I WILL CHOOSE THE MOST WELL THOUGHT OUT/STUPID ARGUMENTS AND POST THEM IN MY DAILY POST. THE ONLY EXCEPTION IS NO RICK PITINO/KAREN SYPHER RANTS. IT’S OVER WITH, AND WE ARE NOT GETTING INTO MORAL ISSUES HERE.
I think you will see a couple things:
1) BTI is not the only person in the world with an opinion. It’s not an opinion if people don’t disagree with you.
2) It’s alot easier to just say someone else is a moron than to actually articulate your own point.
3) People who agree with you, rarely tell you so. They only speak up when they disagree. (As the poll on the right proves)
-Here is one the STUPIDEST things in sports: If one of your players gets hit by a pitch, you MUST retaliate. Perfect example: The Mets David Wright was beaned on the head by the Giants Matt Cain this weekend. It was CLEARY an accident, and Cain was clearly disturbed that he did this. But, Johan Santana felt he was “protecting” his guy by then throwing at not one, but two Giants hitters the next inning. Let’s give a little comparison in other sports:
–FOOTBALL: After a defensive player gets a 5-yard facemask penalty, on the next play, an offensive lineman takes on the knees of a linebacker.
–BASKETBALL: After a blocking call is made on the defense after a collision under the basket, one of the defensive players hits a guy in the face with an elbow.
–SOCCER: After a hard slide tackle, the other team intentionally spikes a player in the ankle. And that player flops to the ground (couldn’t resist).
-Adrian Beltre has gone on the disabled list for what might be called a PAINFUL injury. But, when you find out how exactly Beltre came about this injury, you’ll realize that he asked for it. And once again, a baseball player gets injured in a stupid manner in the least physical major sport. I’m not sayin, I’m just sayin.
-Poor, poor Quentin Richardson. In just this ONE offseason, he has now been traded THREE TIMES!!! He has gone from New York (YIKES) to Memphis (YIKES) to Minnesota (DOUBLE YIKES) to Miami. So, I guess it turned ok for Q, as he actually ended up on a good team, but it must be hell trying to sell those three homes in this housing market.
