A Catholic who follows Rome & the Magisterium. I'm against gay "marriage", abortion, embryonic stem cell research, euthanasia, human cloning. Altar girls, Communion in the hand, Eucharistic Ministers and "Protestant" music in the Church doesn't bother me at all. A proud American retired submarine sailor. Our borders should be secured with a 10 ft. high fence topped by concertina wire with minefields out to 20 yards on both sides and an additional 10 yards filled with warning signs outside of that Let's get energy independent NOW! Back Israel to the max, stop appeasing followers of the Pedophile Prophet. Pro 2nd Amendment, pro death penalty, Repeal all hate crime legislation. Back the police unless you'd rather call a hippie when everything hits the fan. Get government out of dealing with education, childhood obesity and the enviornment. Stop using the military for sociological experiments and if we're in a war don't micromanage their every move. Kill your television, limit time on the computer and pick up a book. God's will be done and may He have mercy upon us all.

100-0

That was the score of a recent high school girl's basketball game in this area. Seems the winning coach didn't think his team needed to let up. To add further insult, the school they played is one for special needs kids. If my kid was on the winning team she'd be off the squad as soon as I heard of this.

Here's where it gets bad. LOTS of folk in this area are defending that coach, claiming he merely was doing his job, you don't let up on your opponent in war do ya? Etc. & etc.

A nationally syndicated talk show host (Mike Gallagher) even did his best today to defend the schmuck. Which illustrates why I only listen to Gallagher when the alternative is my kid's Veggie Tales CD, and quite often the Veggie Tales win out. Today I was just tired of Bob the Tomatoe & Larry the Cucumber.

This is the sort of crap that really turns me off about the liberals, the inability to see yourself in your opponent. Thats why so many have spent eight years literally calling for the head of GW Bush on a pike, followed by Dick Cheney and others. Decency seems to go by the wayside if you don't support the liberals.

But is wasn't the libs defending the coach, it was conservatives. So the disease is all over our culture. And I think it sucks.

Look, I'm no fan of "proportionate response" in a war, fight or any REAL conflict. But I'm also a big fan of sportsmanship, not just on the playing field but in day to day living. When you come out on top, give the guy you beat a hand. When you're whipping ass on somebody with no chance of a comeback, ease up. You might be the one on the receiving end next time.

Our culture in general really sucks sometimes. That goes for all of us.

Was the team that pathetic that they couldn't score?

If the game was 100 to zero with the back ups in the game...I'll defend the coach, the back ups are in the game, and if the other team can't stop them, that's too bad.

If the game was 100 to zero with the starters in the game, that's despicable and wrong.

With the Lions going 0-16, i guess anything is possible.

Joe, the team was that pathetic. This was a known fact going into the game. Seems to me the winning coach should have told his players to just run out the clock after getting about 25 points ahead, maybe even let the other side score a basket or two.

What the hell, there was a story making the rounds not too long ago about a girls softball team that carried an opposing runner around the bases after she had slammed one out of the park. Seems she messed her ankle up doing it so the opposing team felt, "Hey, why not?"
