Try Stomping Your Opponent

September 25th 2006

I was at a game last week where fans were celebrating prematurely and I had a bad feeling as I watched them taunt the opposing fans in the stands that their actions may come back to haunt them.

They did.

Unfortunately, and maybe fortunately for some, the fans doing the taunting soon were on the receiving end as the final horn sounded and their team lost.

As the saying goes, “Don’t count your chickens until they’ve hatched.”

I read a story where Miami players were stomping on Louisville’s midfield logo prior to a football game between the two schools a few weeks ago. If true, that showed a great deal of disrespect to Louisville athletics. Two, there’s nothing like giving the other team – in this case the home team – some additional motivation.

As they say, “Win with class and lose with class.”

And, it might be a good idea to keep the stomping on the field, but not on the opposing team’s logo.
