BYU vs. Utah Game

The most savage controversies are those about matters as to which there is no good evidence either way.  - Bertrand Russell

I am just putting it out there that I’m pleased with the outcome of the game last Saturday.  That being said, I hate the game itself.  I think it brings out the worst in everyone involved so I choose to not be involved in any way if I can help it.  When people get competitive like that they seem to do things that are not in character for them and I will not condone actions or words from anyone that are just unkind for the sake of a game.  I think it is so uncalled for and childish.  Now I am fine with a little clean competition, but honestly, both teams are, and have been for a long time, about the same in quality.  So get over it people.  There is no need for name calling or throwing things at people or destroying property.  I do not think it has anything to do with the fact that the LDS church owns one school or that most of the general authorities went to the other school.  If you use one of those reasons as an excuse, you are just stupid and petty.  Seriously, grow up and quit insulting the other school.  And all this Max Hall stuff is so lame.  Yeah, he said things that weren’t nice, but about half of you who are complaining about how stupid he is and how much he is a bad person have trash talked BYU and their fans so it’s about time for you to shut the hell up.  I’m just tired of hearing about it.  You do not know what he has had to deal with and he does not know what you have had to deal with.  Good, I’m glad that we had that talk.

Moving on, let’s all just try harder to be nice and just have a friendly game of football with some non-mean competition.  And while we’re at it let’s realize that everyone says things they don’t mean when they are upset and everyone (except for those people who are actually bad people) regrets saying those things after they have cooled down.  And everyone has done it.  I mean you.  I also know I’ve done it so there’s no exception for myself.  It sucks and it happens so like I said before, get over it and be nice.

That’s all.  Happy December!
