Last weekend in our part of the world, we had two tragic deaths. First, a 53-year-old man lost his life in a fire and then a 51-year-old man died as the result of an ATV accident. Very sad, indeed.
Our local TV station has a morning program which I follow on Twitter. On Monday morning, the following tweets were posted:
1) "2 sad events from the weekend. First, a fatal fire."
2) "...and a fatal ATV crash."
And then they had the links to the stories.
That was fine and dandy--they did just what you would expect from a news show.
After a little while, the 'tweeter' put this tweet up:
"Someone asked me to mention that there were 3 sad things this weekend...the Packers lost."
EXCUSE ME!?!?!?!?!? You are equating a loss in a FOOTBALL game to the tragic deaths of two people???
And Packer fans wonder why they are universally hated?
***I must say that I DO know some nice people who happen to be Packer fans. I excuse their douchiness. However, the majority of Packer fans I know are all kinds of disgusting. And that's why the hatred from me. ;)***
