The Kansas Jayhawks Men’s Basketball team (not just Andrew Wiggins) must take precedence over the freshmen domination beginning to take place.
I didn’t believe they deserved to be fifth in the country, but after the Duke game, I can’t say enough about the Jayhawks. I thought Duke was going to win by 10 or more points. Needless to say… I was incorrect.
The Simpsons provided a hilarious example of fan treatment of athletes in the classic episode “Homer at the Bat.” Bart and Lisa are taunting Darryl Strawberry when Marge says to them, “Kids, that’s not very nice.” Lisa responds by saying “Mom, they’re professional athletes! They’re used to this. It rolls right off their back.” It then cuts to Strawberry on the field, wiping away a lone tear.
