Time to Ban College Basketball as Player Snaps Leg
Another example of pointing out absurdity by being absurd.
Check it out:
I don’t know. I don’t know how they can continue to permit young boys in college to play basketball. Did you see that gruesome injury yesterday? The player for Louisville broke his leg. Folks, this discussion involves the maneuvering of body parts in places they’re not supposed to be. If that sickens you, I’m gonna count down from five and you should stop listening for a while and just make sure you come back.
Five, four, three, two, one.
A young man was jumping to block a three-point shot from the perimeter right in front of the bench, came down wrong and the tibia just snapped and broke right through the skin. And everybody was crying. Coach Pitino was crying. The team was crying. The cheerleaders were crying. The audience, the crowd, was crying. The network telecasters were warning people as they replayed the video not to look at it, because it was so gruesome, as they continued to play it. I was not watching. I’m not a college athlete guy. I don’t have an alma mater. I’ve just never been excited about it. The uniforms look cheaper, everything. But, anyway. I said, “Well, I’ll see this on YouTube and I’ll find out what it’s all about.”
