Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

In an undeniably cool move, Anthony Booker of Iowa State flipped off the camera after being assessed a flagrant foul and taken out of today's game against West Virginia. It would have been cooler if he was apathetically rolling his eyes, or wearing sunglasses, or smoking a cigarette—or all three—but except for maybe the first play here, Booker played it about as cool as you can on a basketball court. His passion for the game is almost as inspiring as his angry disregard for its audience.

Booker later apologized, citing the fact that there were little kids at the game, to which the little kids almost definitely responded with an awed mix of reverence and fear. That's what being cool looks like, children of West Virginia. Try to emulate it whenever possible.
