Some guys dig ditches or collect trash for a living. Then there are some guys that make their money participating or coaching sports. I always keep that as a frame of reference when I watch some of these players and coaches meltdown in front of the cameras. My favorite was Hal McRae dropping a cluster bomb on reporters in his office. One dude forgot his blast shield and got hit with something and suffered a cut across his face. I can see TV crews getting ready for McRae's next Press Conference.
- Camera - Check!
- Microphone - Check!
- Microphone Cord - Check!
- Extra Battery - Check!
- Welder's Mask - CHECK!
After that assault, McRae drops the parting shot, "Put that in your ****ing pipe and smoke it!" CLASSIC stuff.
OK, now I leave it out there for you. What's your favorite sports meltdown?
