In case you haven't seen this yet, the young Oregon fan giving the double-bird salute from the stands here toward UCLA's Kevin Love got into big trouble when he returned home. It seems that Sports Illustrated ran the photo with its story about rabid college sports fans a couple of weeks ago, and the guy's dad saw it. Result? Dad took away the kid's car.
A letter in the March 24 edition of Sports Illustrated reads:
"I was shocked to see, in a photo of the Oregon student section, my son partaking in the harassment of UCLA's Kevin Love. When he came home the following weekend, his car was taken away and he headed back to school on a bus. I am embarrassed and wish to apologize to Kevin and his family." — Armando Navarro, Clackamas, Ore.
And they say that print media is dead.
And, following below are some other potential bus customers that SI missed. You kids should be ashamed of yourselves!
Thanks For The Bus Ride, Sports Illustrated! [theWhammy]
