“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you.”
What better way to begin my final conversation on the topic of court storming and sports celebrations in general. Oprah is the queen of getting people overly excited about things that they normally would not be freaking the fuck out over.
YOU GET A NEW KITCHEN RUG!
AND YOU GET A NEW KITCHEN RUG!
YOU ALL GET NEW KITCHEN RUGS!
Holy shit we are all getting new kitchen rugs this is quite possibly the best day ever I can’t believe that Oprah is so kind and…
WAIT THERE IS MORE! YOU GET AN ENTIRE FUCKING NEW KITCHEN! EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU!
OHHHHHHHHHMYGODDDDDDD! TRAMBLE EVERYONE I NEED TO CELEBATE THIS MOMENT!
Sure, that is not exactly what happens but it is pretty damn close. Now why on earth would anyone trample another human being in a mass celebration? I don’t know, I have never stormed anything except an open bar. I do know what it is like to be moved to raw and unsolicited emotion when my favorite sports team has won a game that they were not supposed to win. Without passion, sports are almost useless.
Does passion mean you elbow an opposing team’s player? No, but it can happen in the heat of the moment. Does passion mean you put a kid in precautionary headlock as an assistant coach? No, but it can happen in the heat of the moment. Does passion mean you prepare your security detail for a possible eruption in case your team decides to show up to a game for once? Yeah, probably. Criticizing sports fans for acting “over the top” and “classless” in the heat of the moment after a giant win for their school is ridiculous. Get down from your high and mighty tower and let the fans celebrate their win.
KU is known for winning Big 12 Championships, having crybaby fans that never attended the school and for being elitist pricks. K-State is apparently a bunch of hillbilly farmers that need to keep their elbows to themselves. Alright, that’s fine. KU fans can be sophisticated and K-State fans can be those awful farmer people that supply the nation with food. We crushed Bill Self, destroyed Jamari Traylor, basically set the entire town of Manhattan on fire and gave KU fans something else to bitch about besides how terrible they played against one of the worst teams in the Big 12.

KU Coach putting kid in a headlock:
For some reason I feel like K-State will have beefed up security from now on and will learn from this mistake. No one is forcing you to storm the court, if you don’t believe in it… DON’T DO IT! If you are afraid of being trampled, don’t sit down where you could be. If you are deathly afraid of being on a plane, travel by bus.Prepare yourself, educate yourself and know how to avoid a mass trampling. I don’t have much more advice other than let the passion run freely and realize you could be trampled by any group of people at anytime. This will help you live in complete fear and allow you to be mentally and physically prepared for a court storming at any given moment.
If you still hate court storming, you could always team up with this whack job:
