. . .and this is almost news.
That rant (which changes a bit with each retelling—the cheerleader bit was
new) proves one thing. Eggshell sensibilities and real life don’t often
mix. But it’s odd he’d support a school whose fans actually climb
out of the stands and onto the field to try (rather unsuccessfully) to harm the
opponent’s cheerleaders. Nice glass house!

@UteologyAre you serious? You're comparing a few
isolated instances over 10 or 15 years, i.e, paper cups thrown at a ref by a
couple fans, a fan tackling a cheerleader (which Cheerleader, btw, went on to do
his graduate work at BYU) and a snarky message on a Jumbotron ...To
what?I'll tell you what, as a former U of U student and one who
was dragged to U of U games for 12 years, by my misguided Father (lol), was
constantly subjected to anti-Mormon chants, inebriated fans (who are Masters of
weaving tapestry's of profanity, that linger over the Great Salt Lake to
this day), and witnessing a BYU Female Cheerleader, bombarded with snowballs, to
the point of injury. And that says nothing of the anti-Mormon crowd
we had to endure from the Utah Chronicle and liberal Professors, who always had
a hard time remembering their job descriptions and sticking to the subjects
which they were hired to teach.Most (Six figure) U of U Professors,
only spend 4 hours a week in the classroom, the T.A.'s do most of the work,
many of whom have not even mastered English as a second or third language.So yes, Uteology, AZUte, Naval-Frog et al, I know of which I speak.

Bluto - Sandy, UTApril 13, 2018 11:35 a.m.Weddle is a really good
guy and a Mormon convert, (which really drives U fans crazy).However, it
does appear as if his exposure to the "Eccles University-School of Bad
Manners" has affected him.-------------I wonder how
these bad manners affected you: pelting officials with garbage, attacking
cheerleaders, and this:"Following BYU's 78-72 win over the
Aggies, the arena's Jumbotron flashed a quick message that read: "Dear
UT St. Enjoy The LOSS! (heart) Your Big Brother BYU." Once video and photos
of the Jumbotron message hit the web on Thursday, Aggie fans expressed dismay at
the lack of sportsmanship."
“Weddle is a really good guy and a Mormon convert, (which really drives U

delighted, it seems to annoy coog fans that it happened at the U.
“(which really drives U fans crazy).”Huh? What are you
even talking about?Go Utes!
No beard....no problem.If a clean-cut guys yells the same thing,
nothing happens.Dude looks almost homeless (which I don't have
a problem with at all). Augusta International doesn't roll like that.

My high school classmate, Gary McCord, a former PGA golfer and current play by
play network announcer for golf told me how he got in troubke with the
“the old men wearing the green blazers” by describing the greens as
if they had been bikini waxed they were so fast”. He was blackballed by
The Masters and not allowed to cover the tournament. It also earned him an
interview on “the Tonight Show” with Johnny Carson. He said that he
could not have engineered better PR than that if he tried!
@Hank Pym:"1) I have as little to do w/ society as
possible"Society gives you a big ole thumbs up for that!
hank:On the other hand, you are validating what Ron said about what
can't be fixed.
re JohnInSLC - April 12... 1) I have as little to do w/ society as
possible2) It would appear you are validating what Ron White said about
"being broken" 3) This is a stylish beard... if you are Mtn man.
"Is there any event more pretentious than The Masters?" How about
Wimbledon or the Kentucky Derby?
Anybody advocating ejection from society for an awesome beard, should be ejected
Anyone w/ a barn-raising beard s/b ejected from society... unless you are Amish,
a muslim cleric, or are a member of ZZ Top.
AYSO soccer rules are worse...I mean more strict—they’ll kick you
off the field even if you think of yelling something.
"Is there any event more pretentious than The Masters?"No,
it tops them all. The Super Bowl is cool too, but it is only one day, where the
Masters is 4 days of awesome.
That is hilarious. Reminds me when I got a yellow card watching my daughters
youth soccer game standing on the sidelines. Apparently some sports want you to
stay uninvolved and quiet.
