Oh, To Be Young Again
This is Officer Lee
Groinman, That’s Right, Washington’s Nearly Most Satisfied Cop.
Or maybe half-way satisfied cop, half-arsed
satisfied cop? You see when the job is only half done, its half way, or
half-arsed. Take for example Coach Romar and his decision to suspend one
of his players for the Pac Ten Tournament.
I don’t want to use any names so let’s
just call him VO.
Works for me…
VO is being suspended for the Pac Ten
Tournament, be it one and done or not, but would then be allowed to play
in any post season tournament, not a given by any stretch of the wildest
imagination. I fear the NIT may come calling, the ‘Kiss your
sister Tournament”, but the Pac Ten Title and an automatic bid
to the NCAA tourney would not surprise me either with this pyscho bunch.
It’s been brought up ad nauseum about
how it takes two to Tango; the Geico auto insurance ad proves it. But
hey, there were two girls as far as I know so there you have it. A 22
year old man does not belong with 16 year old girls. Oh some would say,
“VO did not know they were 16, what’s he supposed to do, ask for ID”?
The hell, he knew exactly what was going
on, the Face Book account, the pre-party conversations, the ride in the
car, the trip to the liquor store. He may not have known they were 16,
but he knew damn well he was toolin’ with high school girls,
If he was that unaware, he’s dumber than
he looks and deserves a complete dismissal from the team.
Here I go assumin’ stuff again. I’m
assumin’ most readers know that the ‘statutory rape’ charges were
dropped against VO. This was all consensual stuff, don’t you know…
Maybe VO should have just given them
some pot. Some would say that would make it all better…
In my last article, er column, er story,
whatever you call what I write I mentioned that I wondered if this team
even liked each other. Just might be on to something there. I’ve
sensed for a while now that something was rotten in Denmark. Seemed to
be a cancer on this team. No chemistry, stupid passes, hot-dog fast
breaks resultin’ in a turn-over and points goin’ the other way.
Enough to drive ya’ nuts, as ol’ Bon
Scott of AC/DC would sing…
So has Romar suspended the ‘cancer’?
I’ve seen some say that this is an
‘alleged’ crime, you know, you are innocent until proven guilty,
all that nonsense. ‘Alleged’, my aching Petunia. No one has ever
denied the drinking aspect of this. Funny how now that the rape charges
have been dropped many now think this is just a boys will be boys
situation. After all, most of us drank in college when we were underage,
or partied with 18 year olds when we were 21, so what’s the big deal?
And besides, the drinking age in Idaho
used to be 19, how many of you used to go to Idaho and buy Coors then
drink with your 18 year old girl in hot-pants?
Some of you guys are nuthin’ more than a
bunch of dried up hypocritical Puritans…
“What’s the big deal”?
Well the big deal was dropped, the
smokin’ gun remained. Stuff happened, stuff was dropped. It takes two to
Tango. The smokin’ gun remained…
So now the ‘smokin’ gun’ sits on the
bench for the opening game against the Warshington State cougar.
Something I called for in my last story or whatever. I was hoping for a
rematch with the crimson fellas.
Some smart old feller once told me to
“Be careful what you wish for, ya’ just might get it.”
Well now, we got it. The ‘cancer’ or the
‘smokin’ gun’, sittin’ on the bench, and what’s the point of that? VO is
not gonna play, why make the trip? Save a buck in this day and age.
What’s the point? Is Romar putting VO on public display?
I could live with that I suppose, but I
think that VO’s presence will be an unneeded distraction. This team has
got that pesky short attention span already…
I suppose that brings me to my point.
I’d be done with VO for good, but that’s my opinion. The team could be
better off without him, or not, who could tell with this bunch?
It’s Husky Basketball, like Tom Hanks
said in his movie, Forrest Gump; “Life is like a box of chocolates, ya’
never know what you’re gonna get.”
Ain’t that the truth, I suppose that’s
why they play the game, one of the more obvious clichés if ya’ ask me…
Holy crapes, I once knew this old inmate
in prison, he’d be doing his rounds as a janitor, mop-bucket in tow. I’d
“Where ya’ headed Jackson!”
“To Hell if I don’t change my ways.”
Take note kids…
Yup, this game ought to do wonders for
the ratings! Maybe Larry Scott could interview both Klay and VO at
Maybe Larry could sign a new TV deal and
fire a few more Pac 10 basketball officials before the second
Works for me!
And this time I do mean grumblings. No way anybody can predict the
outcome of this game. The cougs are just as mental as the Huskies. Ought
to be good for TV ratings, but enough to drive the odds-makers nuts. Bon
Scott would agree, if he weren’t already dead. Any relation to Larry?
Yeah, well anybody would be nuts to bet on
