Get a grip

Apparently Notre Dame QB Jimmy Clausen got nailed with a punch he never saw coming after the Irish fell to UCONN in overtime on Saturday.

I love sports, I'm passionate about them, maybe sometimes even to a fault. But hitting a player because you feel he let "your team" down is downright creepy. Are you really so wrapped up in the fortunes of the team you root for that you need to cause physical harm to a player whose performance you don't approve of?

Get a life.

This rip isn't directed solely at ND fans, although my guess would be that they have a slightly higher lunatic rate than the average fan base. This is directed at fans everywhere who can't draw the line between super-fan and super-psycho.

If you're that upset after a loss, go get a hug from your mom or something.
