Wishing for Injuries and Karmic Retribution

One of our contributors, a fan of the San Francisco 49ers, mentioned he’d like to see players on teams opposing the niners to get hurt.

I thought that was unconscionable. Until I found the niners fan was not unique. I talked to a co-worker, a San Diego Chargers fan we’ll call “Major D.”

Major D. calls a certain quarterback “18.” He claims an injury to 18 … an injury preventing 18 from playing, means 18’s team is “dead.” He called 18’s team’s running game a “fraud”, then stated he would pull for any team playing 18’s team, even if it was Oakland because he hates 18’s team that much. Personally, I don’t blame him. Part of 18’s reason to come to that division in the first place was due to the other teams being weak. Fans of other division rivals hate 18’s team, not to mention 18’s 6-0 record versus the division this season.

I had to laugh but I knew karmic retribution was due. Phillip D. Rivers is a walking injury, and played not-too-well in San Diego’s season-ending loss to Kansas City. 18 is still upright but nearing an end to his distinguished, record-breaking career. Let’s hope 18 continues breaking records, but doesn’t actually do any winning. In the meantime, understand wishing for players to get hurt means karmic retribution.



About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
