Holaaaaaaaaaa! So, a week or so ago the Arkansas Razorbacks went to Ames, Iowa to play Iowa State in men’s basketball. The Hogs started off the game playing like shit, improved to just mediocre for a while and ended like quitters. The next day I thought I’d see if anyone in an Arkansas sports group I belong to on Facebook wanted to discuss what went wrong.
I got banned from the group before I could save the comment thread, but what follows is VERY close to accurate, especially the name calling and insults directed at me. I tend to remember those. My comments in bold, responses in italics.
J: “Seems like every time the Hogs have a chance to make a big splash they drown. Gotta start at least being competitive in these games. We only get a handful of chances.”
Stephen comments: “You’re a moron! GTFOH Man!”
J: “What do you think went wrong last night?”
Stephen: “ISU just had a good night. That’s all.”
J: “Well they did play really great. We seem to make a lot of people look really great though.”
Stephen: “So you’re giving up after only one loss? Some fan you are.”
Now Vicky joins the thread: “If you’re gonna be this bitchy and attack the players like this after only one unfortunate performance you better not show up pretending to be a fan when we win the next big game we play!”
J: “Whoa! I think that’s a bit of an exaggeration of what I said Vicky.”
Vicky responds with “Excuse me???? Whatever!”
Now James shows up with “Guys, just ignore him. He’s a sad, fat fag who is always angry and hates the UofA”
Vicky responds “Well, being gay is his choice if he is, but he most definitely hates the Hogs and is a very angry man.”
J: “Wow this is a really rough crowd here. Love all the name calling and personal attacks though. That’s always a nice touch.”
Stephen returns with “Hey! You’re the one who started the attacks with the cheap shot at the team. I don’t know if what James said is right, but I do suspect you’re probably just a racist who wouldn’t be happy unless we had an all-white team and coaching staff and played Princeton style offense.”
Then quick like bunny Darryl showed up with this gem: “Seriously Jason. Just get the fuck out of here and leave this group to the real fans that actually support the team you POS.”
Then Vicky comes back for more: “I bet you’re the kind of guy who always picks Arkansas to lose when we play a big game.”
J: “Well, Vicky I try to be realistic about these things and when it’s clear that the other team is better than us then yes, I pick them to beat us. Don’t you?”
Vicky fires back “HELL NO! I always pick Arkansas to win! If we were 0-30 and were playing a 30-0 Kentucky team in Lexington I would still pick Arkansas to win! That’s what a REAL HOG FAN does!”
Now Walter shows up with “I think Jason needs a timeout from this group considering his personal attacks on female members. That’s pretty uncalled or dude. You’re a real asshole.”
Vicky finishes her part with “Fuck that fag!”
It was at this point that I clicked on the link to the group to find that he had been kicked out. Gosh that was fun. My fellow Arkansas fans are swell. What REALLY sucks is that Arkansas followed up that loss by losing to a shitty Clemson team that couldn't even beat a super-shitty Rutgers team AT HOME! Man, I came *THIS CLOSE* to creating a new fake Facebook page and joining that group again just to say "TOLDJA!!!"
