Basketball Should Be Banned

Welcome to "The Gods Are Bored." Today we will be brief but to the point.

So many basketball games are decided by someone shooting at a buzzard. Have you noticed this? Players shoot at the buzzard, they execute "buzzard beaters," and sometimes they miss just one last shot at the buzzard.

Today when I was driving to the Vo-Tech I heard on the radio that some basketball player made a 90-foot shot at the buzzard.

Buzzards should not be shot or beaten by basketball players. I call for the immediate cessation of this practice. If it means shutting basketball down as a sport, so be it.

"The Gods Are Bored": saving vultures to our final breath. And then hopefully feeding them, if they haven't all been shot at and beaten.

I'd never heard of basketball players doing that!

...then again, I don't pay much attention to sports, and we don't have vultures in my part of the country, either.

Taking shots at vultures is crazy. Why do they do it??

Ah, Anne, that was "buzzer", not "buzzard".

Basketball is a sport made of three things; half of it is skill and conditioning, a fourth of it heart, and the other fourth team chemistry.

Being a basketball player it is an amazing thing throwing up one of those "BUZZER"(not buzzard) beaters at the end of a game. Winning it all is the greatest payoff.

Just the thought of my sport being taking out of any sort of play is absolutely ridicules.

and, that's not Ruth Buzzi, THE Michael, it was Gilda Radner, as Emily Litella. SNL, not Rowan and Martin...

Oh my goodness... If basketball were to go away, my town- Lawrence, KS, would have a riot that would outdo the Rodney King riots in LA.

Sorry Buzzards, basketball has to stick around, else my little city go up in flames.

I cannot believe that some people actually took this seriously.

Repeat after me:
"Emily Litella. Emily Litella. Emily Litella." Now go write that 500 times...

And, as for people taking that seriously...
How else could you explain the Fox News Channel?
