So the media asks a question to get a rise, 95% of the athletes are smart enough to reveal nothing and give an inane answer......and somehow, that's ok!!! ESPN gets its ratings and somehow sports fans are content with the same regurgitated bullshit word salad
So when someone sits there and treats this process like the bullshit that it is, I enjoy it
But there is zero point to it. It's like throwing a tantrum when you call customer service and you give them all your information and confirmation pins/passwords etc, then they transfer you and you have to do it all over again - yes, it is dumb and annoying, but throwing a fit over it is only making you and the other person unhappy. The horse is out of the barn on the idiocy front, you can come down from the cross now, Bill.
