Controlling the Anger


I'm going to apologize in advance for this. I'm not even if sure if this is the appropriate way to vent my anger; so I apologize for that, too. Here's the deal, Big Blue Nation, I'm angry. Today, on the Eve of the Final Four, I read that a journalist asked a question that was, in my opinion, out of line and unprofessional.

A reporter from CBSSports.com asked John Calipari what it feels like to coach in his first Final Four.

Seriously.

Now, my first reaction was rage, and then I thought, "Well, maybe he meant with UK...maybe he didn't mean it the way it sounded." Then, I read this on the UK Refuse to Lose FaceBook page (I am not sure of the reliability of the source, forgive me.):

 

According to Brett Dawson of the Courier-Journal, Calipari responded with: "I don't deal with that. We've been here 3 times. Those players played those games and did what they were supposed to do."

It *is* possible that the reporter was innocent in his line of questioning.

Unfortunately, Cal's response leads me to believe otherwise.

So, again, I'm angry. Very angry. I want to tweet nasty things to the reporter, and call him out for his behavior. His utter lack of professionalism at this stage, and this level of the game is absolutely, unequivocally unacceptable. I want to write a letter to his superiors. I want to do and say many things that are unbecoming, at best.

My momma taught me to be classy, even when it hurts, so that's what I'll do. I'll vent in the only way I can, to my friends in the BBN.

Thanks for listening. :)
