A Devastating Defeat Brings Out the Worst Moment of Poor Sportsmanship Ever

A quick post for the ghetto nerd set.

I was joking with my friend Gordon Gartrelle over Twitter about how he suggested that fans will describe whoever loses the Grizzlies vs. Spurs game as being "devastated."

Maybe. For my dollar, one of the most devastating losses in the history of sports was Randy Pederson's defeat by (a much older and should have been retired) Ernie Schlegel in the 1995 PBA Touring Players Championship. Schlegel's celebration was also one of the most unsportsmanlike moments in televised sports history.

His yelling, "For the old people!" is imminently quotable.

I can't resist screaming that phrase randomly when I have a small life success.

And when things right themselves for me in the imminent near future--fingers crossed--I am going to run around yelling said phrase like Ernie Schlegel did after his win over Randy Pederson. 

Modesty and humility do not always need to be rules that surrender to emotion and selfish celebratory humanity. It is okay to be tacky on occasion. Right?
