ROOTING FOR ‘BRASHNESS’



  • Thumping your chest after a slam dunk.
  • Pointing to your teams logo and raising your index finger to the sky after and 15-point comeback.
  • Turning to a teammate and boldly declaring, “Not in our house, baby!” after a massive block.

Yes … I guess,

All things considered …

Each of those three scenarios could fall under the classification of brashness.

Competition brings out our inner grizzly bear.

I agree.

Pre-planned showboating is for usually unsportsmanlike behavior (many of the celebrations in the NFL), but let’s not remove honest, fought for, celebrations of exuberance.

(FYI: I found the Georgia Tech player’s behavior playfully exuberant. And yes, I loved the DUKE TEAM comeback. Oh, be quiet… you Duke haters.)
