Cheering when your own QB gets an injury?
Sunday, October 13, 2013
The people who did this when Matt Shaub was injured earlier in Houston, my goodness. What type of people are you? I must say in every city there are some people who really give their city a bad name. Its one thing to boo your entire team when they have played badly for a half or a game but to be happy your struggling QB gets injured? I would say these types need to take a good hard look at themselves and see why they would act that way but I don't think the recognition to do so is there.
I'm a pretty big sports fan and I'm pretty exuberant but I'd never cheer for a player on my own team or any team in any sport to get injured. I do get ticked with owners and management for not getting a clue sometimes. (Don't get me started on my Angels in baseball. Mr. Moreno giving those insane contracts to Hamilton and Pujols really now.)
However, if a team isn't playing well there is a reason. A lot of time its a game plan, it can be the players, coaching, upper management a whole host of things. Every player has had a bad spell or time of it in professional sports. Troy Aikman, John Elway, Joe Montana, Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, Phillip Rivers, Drew Brees every man who has been a QB knows for all the highs there has been some lows.
There just aren't enough words to describe how crazy it is to want some person injured or hurt. That is someone's Son, Brother or Uncle etc...Are these some of the same people who show up in church and look down their nose at others? I think in Houston the Texans being 2-4 the coaching staff, players and even management ought to get together and handle business as people then get to the business of salvaging the season. Maybe those fans need to be identified and if they have season tickets give them the rest of their money back and ban them for life. You couldn't get them all but if this would get around the NFL cities maybe some class could be restored. It should go for all the sports. Rooting for someone to be injured or happy they are is disgusting. I've been angry when my teams play awful but even then I wouldn't boo them because I know most players are doing their best out there. Sometimes you can do your best but the game plan isn't working out, players get injured, coaching is horrible but sometimes its just not your day, game or season.
I feel bad for pitchers when they pitch a heck of a game but they have no run support and they take the loss. (Example Kershaw yesterday on The Dodgers.) Wake up tomorrow Dodgers thank you, do not get swept in 4 please. The Cards have a wicked pitching staff. The Tigers as well. I almost want the Cards and Tigers to get to The World Series if all the pitchers were on their game that would be an exciting series.
Okay rant over but I think the real fans need to get on people who act stupid like this and shame them into behaving. Eh, maybe that wouldn't work but I would bet it would work for some.
Congrats to Hines Ward for completing the Iron Man in Hawaii, much respect for that accomplishment. That seems a lot tougher than winning 2 Super Bowls~
I am getting back to normal eating finally and exercise is working as well. I'm able to go out walking again so I am starting out a bit slower this week and then I will kick it up the next week. The SO bought Halloween candy when he went to Sam's Club earlier today and stored it at my place. He bought the Hershey Bag and then a lollipop bag and he tells me I know this is safe here, lol. It is of course because I only eat chocolate if its a Linder Ball or a Milky Way and its that time and I don't care for suckers or lollipops so yeah its safe!
In terms of exercise chair dancing was good while I was recovering and the other aerobics and Tae-Bo, Cardio etc....was helpful. My allergies & sinuses are fine so I am going to get back to outdoor walking Tuesday morning and see how it goes. I can do an hour just fine every day this week and see how I feel. Remember stretching and warm up is essential. I'm going to do my Yoga as well. I want to get back to max points for my exercising again!
