This is my site. Cool, huh? If you don't like it, well, I guess it lives up to its name for you, then.

What the hell is wrong with people?

"This is awesome," said Bobby Large, 24, of Greenwood. "This is the craziest thing I have seen in sports live in a long time. I was sitting there watching TV with a friend. He and I just looked at each other. We couldn't believe it was actually happening."

"We're here to support our Pacers," Large said. Referring to the Pacers like Ron Artest who had gone into the crowd, Large said, "I don't think they should have run into the crowd. But 'Go Ron'."

I mean, what the hell? "This is awesome"????

As if I needed another reason to quit watching the NBA. Problem is, really, is baseball that much better? I'm a big Cardinals fan, but I've never really gone to any games there. This makes me not want to. This is just sickening. I'm not gonna say one side is to blame more than the other -- frankly, I think it's a systemic thing. Everybody's to blame. And it's really hard for me to justify to myself being part of that system.
