Yesteday was Super Duper Tuesday and Sunday was the Superbowl. A couple things from these events that bothered me. Sore losers.
1. James Dobson, the influential founder of the conservative, evangelical advocacy group Focus on the Family, has delivered a blow to John McCain â€” by saying he wonâ€™t vote for him if heâ€™s the Republican presidential nominee. â€œI am convinced Sen. McCain is not a conservative, and in fact, has gone out of his way to stick his thumb in the eyes of those who are â€¦ I cannot, and will not, vote for Sen. John McCain, as a matter of conscience,â€ he said in a statement on Tuesday. â€œI believe this general election will offer the worst choices for president in my lifetime.

2. If you watched the confusing last seconds of the Super Bowl, you might think that Bad Loser Bill was confused or that he thought the game was actually over.

Staying on the field until the last possible breath of hope is gone is the very least you can expect of an athlete or a coach. Call it protocol, tradition, or simple class. It’s what people do. When you ditch the last seconds of a brutal loss like that, you are literally turning your back on your team. Heck, if every coach who was sick of losing a big game were to leave when it was obvious his team would not win, Marv Levy and Dan Reeves would have shown us their tail lights by halftime during some years. When you lose, be a bigger man than the guy who just beat you. Shake his hand. Offer sincere congratulations. And then you can retreat to a dark room and pout. Belichick doesn’t get it, and probably never will. But the media and the league seem to walk around him in fear. For a league that fines players $10,000 for wearing an unapproved hat to media day, how come they didn’t have the balls to fine Belichick for leaving the field early? Read More.
