Did anyone else find it weird that Roy Williams was on the CBS Halftime show just now wearing a Kansas shirt under his blazer? I know he used to coach there, and there are ties to old employers no matter what the profession. But wouldn't it piss you off if your head coach was on national TV wearing the logo of the school that beat you two days ago? Imagine the Dodgers losing to the Yankees in the World Series, which I hope is the real outcome this year, and Joe Torre is just trotting around the late night talk circuit wearing his Yankees hat again. Or Johnny Damon whips out a Red Sox hat for a postgame interview. But now, for the first time in blog history, I will post a counterpoint to my own argument in the same post. It's a viewpoint given to me by my good friend Billy Lawrence. He says: "See, college is different, there's alums and regardless of where they go in life, they'll always root for them. H
e was probably honored to play the team that he coached, unfortunately they lost, but he still helped make the program what it is, and he loves the school. So why not root for them?"
He's got a very valid point and the love you make is equal to the love you take, or something like that.
I'll hopefully be updating this entry soon with a screen capture of it.
UPDATE: Finally got that Roy Williams picture I was looking for. This isn't the one from the halftime interview, but it's the shirt he was wearing under his aforementioned blazer. Thanks to Awful Announcing for this photo.
