So this Syracuse fan called the head coach of the Georgia Tech basketball team, Josh Pastner, and complained that Tech fans were being too mean by chanting “air ball” at one of Syracuse’s players every time he touched the ball in a recent game.
Yes, the “air ball” chant – sports’ most innocuous jeer that would not even offend your Great Aunt Gertrude.
The only good part about this story is that Pastner actually called this guy back and defended the Georgia Tech fans.
“I told him this is men’s college elite basketball and the ‘air ball’ chant has been going around since Dr. James Naismith invented the game,” Pastner said. “I said sir, this is not Little League, sir. I would agree with you if this was your local YMCA league for sixth graders.”
File under: “Reasons Milo Yiannopoulos has an audience” and “Reasons Donald Trump was elected.”
As if Patriots-haters weren’t sick enough of the now five-time champs, we learned this week that Pats head coach Bill Belichick wasted little time in changing the name of his boat … again.
Up until last week, Belichick’s boat was named “six rings,” signifying the six Super Bowl rings that he owns (Belichick won two Super Bowl titles as the defensive coordinator of the New York Giants).
In a photo captured by Barstool Sports, a shirtless man with the shape of Belichick was spotted sunbathing in Jupiter, Florida and sure enough the detail on the boat was already updated – just 16 days after the Super Bowl. Welcome “VII Rings” to the waters.
