Political Correctness Stupidity

You Can't Make This Stuff Up 012509

Hey folks,

OK we're back. Now most of you know where I stand on PC, AKA Political Correctness. Sorry, but PC is bunk. It is a way to control personal actions and to allow minorities or a single person, to have power over many.

This is insane even for the most die-hard PC proponent. According to The Tucson Citizen - Texas girls hoops team seeks forfeit of 100-0 win by Jeff Carlton

DALLAS — A high school girls basketball team that beat an opponent 100-0 has a case of blowout remorse.

The winning school now says it wants to do the right thing by seeking a forfeit and apologizing for the margin of victory.

Read that again. This High School Girls Basketball team beat their opponents, that apparently should have never been on the court, 100 to ZIP. The other team did not score ONE basket. Says a lot for the coach do you not think?

But now this team wants to Forfeit there victory to the team that didn't score at all, because they do not want them to feel bad. Idiots. I bet you that the team really does not want to do this, but the SCHOOL does.

"It is shameful and an embarrassment that this happened," the head of the school said Thursday on The Covenant School's Web site. He added that Covenant has made "a formal request to forfeit the game recognizing that a victory without honor is a great loss."

HOW IS VICTORY WITHOUT HONOR? It's more HONORABLE TO give up and allow your opponent to win? Or in this case apologize as if you did something wrong and give your Victory away?

Now the AP makes it VERY well known that these are "Christian Schools" NO WHERE does it state that Victory is bad, and this is NOT a Christian philosophy. This is Liberal PC gone wild again.

Covenant, a private Christian school in Dallas, defeated Dallas Academy 100-0 last week. Covenant was up 59-0 at halftime.

A parent who attended the game told The Associated Press that Covenant continued to make 3-pointers — even in the fourth quarter. She praised the Covenant players but said spectators and an assistant coach were cheering wildly as their team edged closer to 100 points.

OF COURSE they were cheering. They were WINNING! Can you imagine a Football team just STOPPING and allowing the other team to catch up or even win? That is NOT reality nor is it real competition. If you are not playing to win, then don't play. PERIOD!

Listen to this Idiot.

"I think the bad judgment was in the full-court press and the 3-point shots," said Renee Peloza, whose daughter plays for Dallas Academy. "At some point, they should have backed off."

{Laughing}

Dallas Academy coach Jeremy Civello told The Dallas Morning News that the game turned into a "layup drill," with the opposing team's guards waiting to steal the ball and drive to the basket. Covenant scored 12 points in the fourth quarter and "finally eased up when they got to 100 with about four minutes left," he said.

Dallas Academy has eight girls on its varsity team and about 20 girls in its high school. It is winless over the last four seasons. The academy boasts of its small class sizes and specializes in teaching students struggling with "learning differences," such as short attention spans or dyslexia.

So maybe they should not be playing, or maybe they need a different Coach.

There is no mercy rule in girls basketball that shortens the game or permits the clock to continue running when scores become lopsided. There is, however, "a golden rule" that should have applied in this contest, said Edd Burleson, the director of the Texas Association of Private and Parochial Schools. Both schools are members of this association, which oversees private school sports in Texas.

Why should there be. This is complete and utter nonsense. But this is Liberal PC. Level the playing field and if you succeed, then you must feel bad about it. {Sigh}

"On a personal note, I told the coach of the losing team how much I admire their girls for continuing to compete against all odds," Burleson said. "They showed much more character than the coach that allowed that score to get out of hand. It's up to the coach to control the outcome."

It is NOT up to the coach to control the outcome. It is up to the players.

Covenant coach Micah Grimes and head of school Kyle Queal did not immediately respond to messages left by The Associated Press on Thursday.

In the statement on the Covenant Web site, Queal said the game "does not reflect a Christ-like and honorable approach to competition. We humbly apologize for our actions and seek the forgiveness of Dallas Academy, TAPPS and our community."

What an absolute bunch of BS! It is NOT Christ - like to fail, allow someone less than you to beat you. It is NOT Christian to be a lump to be walked all over.

The fact that this school actually apologized for WINNING is just ridiculous and a classic sign of how people get caught up in this crap. I repeat, if you are not in it to win, don't be in it.
