We like to keep things fun and light when we can, but there are times when a serious news story commands our attention.  Case in point: A woman was shot and killed after a recent Auburn/Alabama football game. It was a fellow female fan who pulled the trigger...and why?
The reasoning was simple, and horrifying: The victim wasn't taking Alabama's loss hard enough.  The murderer - who didn't know the mother of three before they attended the same post-game party - felt that the victim deserved to die because she wasn't a big enough fan.
Sure, it was a dramatic game with a miraculous, unexpected ending for Auburn, but that's no excuse for violence. Can society live through a couple of drunken fans throwing punches in a stadium parking lot? Probably. Is a football game actually important enough to fight over? No way. At the end of the day, though, a five-minute fistfight is a hell of a long way from cold-blooded murder.
Do the world a favor, folks. Before you leave the house today, stop in front of the mirror and ask yourself: "Do I have a handle on this?"
If the answer is anything but "yes", stay inside and talk to a professional.

Absolutely True
Sports fans need to get a grip on reality. No sports team is worth hurting another person or worst killing another person. Kobe Bryant will not invite you over for defending his honor. There is nothing better than a great sports debate, but when I sense that things are getting heated I calm it down, because getting in a fight just isn't worth it. Shame on this lady for taking a life because of a game, and all the real Alabama fans will forever look at her in disgust.
