  • Extra Points: Basketball

        I can’t believe that after having had been suspended from one game, apologizing and coming out saying he knew what he did was wrong, Grayson Allen pushed a coach on the bench and then he grabbed another player while falling. The funniest part of that whole falling situation was the guy slapped in in the face.
        Grayson Allen is a basketball player for Duke University. Allen has had numerous tripping incidents and has only been punished once.

  • Extra Points: Snow Delays

        This past weekend has been crazy between games and activities being canceled because of snow and schedules being rearranged. Snow is my least favorite part of winter. I don’t really mind the cold but I do mind the snow.
        Maybe I’d like snow if there weren’t so many people out on the road thinking they can drive normally in the snow, or if we actually took care of roads better, or if things didn’t just close down because a snowflake fell.
