[Business Day One] Hate With Me

Filed under: Business Day One — Tags: , — Serpico @ 12:17 pm

It is my solemn promise to never miss a Business Day One post. I hold this vow so sacred that I will write an entry even after the internet loses the original one that I put three hours into writing. Such is the indomitable nature of my will.

So here is a post of rage, of frustration and of hate. A list of everything in sports that I cannot stand. That makes me question why I even follow the exploits of men playing a game. Come, hate with me.

The Business Day One List of Things I Hate About Sports:

-Players Thanking God – God doesn’t care about you, or how crisp your cutback move was on that fourth and short at the goal line. God didn’t give you extra quicks, nor did he somehow divinely smite your opponents, causing them to misjudge the snap count. It was you, Bible Thumping Fullback. Not God. Just you. You were in the gym, not God. God, or any other power you believe in, has no interest in the game you play. And if He does, He’s no more interested in you than He is in your opponent. You’re the one that wins and loses, not God.

-The Coach “Losing His Touch” – Coaches don’t somehow forget how to coach between one season and the next. It is the job of the sports commentator, however, to write garbage like that to sell papers and get traffic to their website. Sure, over decades, if a coach doesn’t change, then the game passes him by. But in the offseason? No. That’s now how the human mind works.

-The Fan That Screams At A Player – Do not boo a player on your team, and do not ask “how can you miss that shot?” Not ever. You can’t dribble, balding guy with the Garnett jersey. You can’t throw a tight spiral, Packers hat wearer. You can’t get slam-tackled by a linebacker and then get to your feet, shake off a car accident’s worth of trauma and get back in the huddle. You can’t, fans. You can’t do that, nor can you understand how difficult it is to do. Sure, they get paid millions. But they get paid millions because one time out of three, they can put a ball in play off one of the 200 best pitchers in the world. They get paid millions because they can hit a jumper with a hand in their face in front of twenty thousand people at the buzzer. They get paid millions because they can do what you, your friends or anyone you have ever met in your life cannot do. So don’t boo your own, people. And don’t sit on your couch and say “even I could’ve gotten a yard there.” You clearly have no idea.

Getting a speeding ticket lawyer in some cases makes sense, but consider all these options first before going out and hiring a lawyer.

Many states have point systems that when you gain too many points for violations you lose your license. do you desperatley need a Baton Rouge traffic ticket attorney thats on your side then visit us now.

If you are at the point where if you admit guilt to the ticket you lose your license for 6 months or even a year, it makes sense the spend the money to have a lawyer look into your issue and even fight for your cause in court. It would be more convenient to pay more for the lawyer than the actual ticket costs to keep your ability to drive especially if you are the only one in your household who drives.

What are some reasons that someone might need to hire an attorney due to a speeding ticket?

In our society today getting a ticket for speeding is so common that most of us don’t give it a second thought. However, it is my recommendation that if you get one you should consider contacting a traffic lawyer. This is especially true if this is not your first speeding ticket.

The penalties you may receive from the judge will depend on the number of tickets you have acquired in the last year, how many miles over the speed limit you were going at the time you were caught, the state you live in and if you were involved in a motor vehicle collision while you were speeding.

Penalties may include large monetary fines, court costs, increased premiums from your car insurance company, drivers education classes and possibly even jail time. A speeding ticket lawyer can help give you advice before going to court.

-Screaming Children At The Ballpark – You spent $200 per seat for the game, dude. Spend an extra $50 and get a babysitter. I mean, please. Please, you jerk. Don’t bother everyone in the section.

-The Sports Website Post Upload System With Technical Difficulties – Thank you for ruining my day.
