Philip Rivers gets schooled by high schooler
 
http://sports.yahoo.com/nfl/blog/shu...urn=nfl,176581

I have 2 thoughts on this.

1. Why do people make big deals over things like this. For one thing, Rivers more than likely didn't give 2 sh*ts about this thing and gave about 16% effort. Meanwhile this kid is hungry and giving 200%.

2. Why do pros put themselves in these positions? They know there's always the possibility of some cat off the street making them look foolish (i.e. Lebron or Devin Harris).

at the end of the day Rivers can throw for 4000 yards in the nfl for millions and the other person can't so who cares?

Why are you making a big deal out of it by making a thread?

I mean c'mon man what are they supposed to second guess their every move and consider the possibilities of every action.
If they do that then the media will pretty much be able to control some people.

Its easier for them to just do stuff and not worry about it.

How the hell am I making a big deal out of it when the sh*t is already in the news. I posted an article that was in todays news and gave my take on it. But it's cool. I'd much rather rate b*tches or talk about Charlie Z's next fight.
