In the wake of Nyjer Morgan's outburst, we're left with the sad reminder, that with losing, comes a measure of childishness.
No one, really, likes to lose. But, when we're faced with it, we're self-propositioned with a choice. We can either suck it up, hold it in, get a little flippant, throw a little fit, or ...
When we watch things like this--we laugh, cause it's funny. But then, in the real world we're left with the jolting reality, that Coach Hines, may in fact, be inspired by true stories all across America.
Either that or, these real-life sports figures have taken a page out of this guys book.
Granted sometimes you really want to do it; you just don't touch the ump.
Mr. Offerman didn't have that filter in his brain.
Offerman was a very short-tempered, wildly angry man.
He certainly gets my No. 6 spot.
Now, if you're losing, if you're upset, if you're on edge, surely the solution is right here in this video. I don't know how he did it, but it's brilliant.
Upon watching this profound tutorial, you will be ready the next time you are losing, angry, and on edge.
Learn nothing from that lesson? OK, Try this.
Now you've gotta love the good ol' frustration flop. I suspect coach Borseth was very heavy handed in most everything he did before he enters this screen.
He probably barrelled through the locker room doors, slammed his clipboard down rolled his chair out from under his desk banging it on the wall scribbled his notes until he became more frustrated.
Stormed out of the office with his press conference papers, bursting through doors he enter the press room and...
Now to argue a hit batter, you must be losing and desperate.
This guy was saving this moment for when he became angry enough, and apparently this day was the day.
Ok, folks. This is where anger borders insanity.
Sometimes you get so angry, that you don't know what's going on anymore.. What you say and what you do is controlled by some outside factor, at which point, there is absolutely no return.
Sometimes you snap back into yourself caught in a predicament you have no clue what you've gotten yourself into.
When this guy snapped back into it, he was holding two bases in his hand and there was certainly nothing he could do.
This minor league manager lost a call, lunged after the ump in a wild out of control manner to begin with, what's more, he continues to work himself up so much, it looks like he completely forgot where he was.
Goodness, hate to see his arguments with his wife.
