You are a sad...sad...bald little man.

Please tell your wife (if you have one) that she's an insane person to put up with you...Please tell your children that you're sorry that they have such of an ass of a father...Please tell your family that they are the best family in the world to put up with your antics...because in all reality, you are one of the most idiot, compulsive, arrogant, stupid people I have ever met.

GG pretty much says it all. It doesn't say much for a man to take so much sardonic pleasure in the failings of others or to ignore a player's passion and talent in favor a rip-job post mortem. Adam Morrison has more talent in his in-game tears than you'll display in your entire life.

A big "amen!" The Zags are overrated, Morrison's a punk. Thank goodness we don't have to look at them in the Final Four.

Chris Baldwin and Barney Try living with diabetes from the age of eight (including having to give yourself injections on the bench during games)before you call anyone a "punk". As far as I'm concerned Morrison has more guts than either one of you would know how to handle. Try walking a mile in someone's shoes...

Do you really find it surprising that someone of Morrison's age and obvious dedication to his craft would succumb to emotions in such a situation.

Sure, others may not but your criticism suggests you would be above such emotion. Are you so sure? Any evidence for this? I guess you're not so familiar with the lofty level of commitment and achievement of people such as Morrison.

This is a fairly absurd column, especially coming from a golf blogger. I'm not sure what game you were watching, but Morrison was on the court in the final seconds trying to get open for the final desperation shot. There was no "water spouting" before the buzzer. If you don't have an anguished look on your face after your team blows a 17 point lead, then you probably shouldn't be playing. I'm not quite sure what insecurities led you to write this column, but perhaps you should sort them out before you publicly embarrass yourself next time.

You nare most impressive, Mr. B.
Heres an example of some class.
Damn, I love this.

Time magazine interviewed Michelle Wie.

Reporter to MW:Rush Limbaugh reportedly said something about you recently [calling her a "triumph of marketing"]

Michelles answer:
—Huh? Who's that?

Reporter:There's an impressive group of competitive young women golfers right now—and occasionally you get some trash talk from them.

MW:It's nice to see that they have their opinions. They have the right to say whatever they want to say. It doesn't bother me. I'm used to people judging me without even knowing me. I'm in high school.

Looks like she recognizes Baldwin and Limbaugh for what they are, lol. Not very important in her scheme of things.
And not one put down of anyone. The young lady is far classier than some of her opponents in the LPGA, some of whom, like Nancy Lopez and Beth Daniels who have passed judgement on her a few times.

And then Chris, you embarrass the hell out of yourself with a trashy piece of gibberish like this?
You really do need to go get some help, man.

LOL!! Mr. Baldwin is well qualified to speak on the pressures of being Adam Morrison for the last 4 months.

You are a fat, bald loser who has no idea what it means to be an athlete. Any ten year old girl can kick your flabby ass in any sport. I guess you already know that, since all you can do is talk trash on a golf blog.

Baldwin...I really hope you die a slow and painful death (when you're VERY elderly of course!) =)

I would never hope for you to die Baldwin, but I do wish you would find an occupation that you could excel in. It would make your mother proud.

Baldwin: Please stick to following around overweight slobs on the golf course. Your journalism career obviously is going nowhere.

As a former athlete with the exiprence of being in Morrison's shoes(I fouled out of a game which led to the other team gaining the lead) I know that I was unable to control the emotion of the sean and of the game. The drive to win in an athlete is so powerful that even if the rest of the world thinks you are a solid rock, the relaization of you playing career comming to an end right in front of you with really nothing available for you to do to stop it is tough!
Go Morrison, you only get the expirence once so dont lie about the emoitons let them out!

Chris is right. I also am a former athelete and I can't figure out what is going on with all the crying in sports today. It would be one thing if we were talking about pre-teenage children. I have never, until the last ten years or so, seen any of this before. And I don't think that any of the other losers of important games prior to 1995 cared any less about winning than these crybabies.

LOL........LOL...... I couldnt believe what I saw. Adam Morrison is a little cry baby. I can imagine what he did when he lost his 8th grade Championship. Probably wet his pants....lol.....

I suggest you do a bit of research on Type 1 diabetes. Being overly emotional is a symptom of low blood sugar. My daughter cies for no reason (other than low blood sugar) all the time. He actually had something to be upset about. SO it is possible that his reaction was a simple result of his condition. If any of you had to go through what he does every day I doubt there'ld be anyone calling him a Baby.

Comment from: Hruska [Visitor]
Most of you are morons, especially you baldwin. Your first statement compares golf, a game which takes very little physical effort to basketball. If you watched Morrison at any other time during the season, or even any other tourny game, you would understand that he is emotional even in winning.(ex. spiking the ball off his head) You are a sat man and a poor as hell writer. All who read your column and take any litteral meanig are morons like you. Learn and think before you write.

Adam Morrison is passionate. He plays with uncanny skill, emotion and determination. And oh yeah...he's got Type-1 diabetes. He is an inspiration to many, especially young athletes. He is just plain fun to watch. You gotta love this guy. He is what he is, and he's not afraid to show it. The Zags gave us the best season, almost every game was an edge of the seat nail biter. The have a lot to be proud of. They'll be back... and I can't wait. Go Zags!!

I was really proud of the ZAGS this year! Only being 12, it is my dream to make it to Gonzaga University to play Basketball for the ZAGS. My biggest star was Ronny Turiaf but now that he is with the Lakers I changed to J.P. and Adam. No, I have not gone to a game, although I'd really like to, but tickets are hard to get. I'm really sorry they lost to U.C.L.A. but you guys will be back next year! One last thing. GO ZAGS

Well, looks like Gonzaga should drop basketball. Well, maybe just drop to a more competitive conference, like the Greater Spokane League, although Gonzaga Prep might give them a run.

Lets see now, if Morrison goes pro and leaves Gonzaga, will he make the Gonzaga Hall of Fame?

Maybe Gonzaga should buy an insurance policy on Adam for injuries in 2006-7 and ask him to come back for a year.

After all the hype about basketball and the brokeback mountian scandal now at Gonzaga, the Jesuits should: reconsider basketball, and what Gonzaga University is all about, tear down that huge new gym they built, and build a new library. What was Gonzaga was founded on Basketball or Bing Crosby?

With all the church scandals and such, maybe the higher up in Rome, needed to make a few side bets to cover all the lawsuits. I have two answers to that alligation and those at the Gonzaga Law School, know the meaning of prima facie evidence.

UNR and UCLA

Well, for me it's kinda of a relief. I thought the worst sports memory in the history of Gonzaga, was when my Grandfathers Bulldogs had a losing football season in 1941, and Gonzaga dropped football forever. Thank you 2005-6 Bulldogs.

Well looks like you (Mike) have sour grapes. Did you loose some money on your bet??
And FYI...
Gonzaga was not founded on basketball or Bing Crosby. Gonzaga was founded in 1887 and is named after a 16th century Italian Jesuit named Aloysius Gonzaga. He died in Rome trying to save young people from the plague. He was later named the patron saint of youth.

Here's some advice -
Develop your Total Self...mind, body and spirit

The SUCCESS of GU's Division 1 men's basketball program has given GU national attention.

prima facie evidence
n. Law
Evidence that would, if uncontested, establish a fact or raise a presumption of a fact

Consider yourself contested.

Ok, I have 2 brothers that graduated from Gonzaga University. I love Gonzaga.

My Grandfather, gave the University national recognition from 1922-1941. Puggy Hunton played for Gus Dorias and Maurice Clipper Smith. He was the outstanding player in 1925. Barrett medal award winner.

He made Ripley Believe it or not in 1930-31, when his team when 18 game without being scored upon and won 7 city football championships, when the High School was at the Boone Ave School.

He was coach of the Week in 1939 when Gonzaga Beat Oregon 13-7.

Sour Grapes.

Well when Gonzaga dropped football (because of 3-7 in 1941), my Grandfather had a year left on his contract. He brought pro-football to Gonzaga Stadium in the form of training camps.

He played for the best teams in Gonzaga History, started and lettered every year.

Most of his teammates are in the hall of fame from those years 1922-25. He beat one of the best Gus Dorias team at Detroit in 1939 his first year as Gonzaga's University team. In that year, Gonzaga just missed a sun bowl bid.

Billy Frasier, who took over for Puggy Hunton, at Gonzaga Prep, never coached or played at the University
made that insitution of prized Gonzaga Athletes, the Gonzaga Hall of fame.

Larry, I grew up in Spokane, went to St. Augustine grade school. Don't screw with Gonzaga, even if your in the right. I'm sure St. Aloysius Gonzaga, would be proud of what they did to my Grandfather at the University.

Just like the Gonzaga Football Stadium, when my grandfather died, not a rich man. They tore down his house to make a city park (Grant Park) bigger.

You can look all you want in their archives on line, you won't see him or Maurice "Clipper" Smith either.

Contest this one.

You know you are kind of a jerk.

Go Zags.

Well, Larry, you could get down on me for spelling mountian wrong. I drop letters sometimes too....

Just one last note about this comment you made.

Gonzaga was not founded on basketball or Bing Crosby. Gonzaga was founded in 1887 and is named after a 16th century Italian Jesuit named Aloysius Gonzaga. He died in Rome trying to save young people from the plague. He was later named the patron saint of youth.

Puggy Hunton finished his coaching career at Sacred Heart Grade School in Spokane doing it for free. Check the 1955 Washington Post Archives.

Being a jerk is kinda of fun.

Mike,
The best thing we can leave behind is a good legacy. Your grandfather did that.

What's yours going to be?

Zag for life.

I think one (of many) of my brother's legacies would be his son currently serving his second tour in Iraq after volunteering to fight for his country after September 11th.

Oh, yeah, his son's (and my nephew's) specialty is diffusing Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs or 'roadside bombs')

Pray that he didn't get blown up today in Baghdad protecting your freedom.

P.S. You couldn't meet a nicer guy in the world than my brother Mike.

Paul:

Did Larry piss you off or what?

I was wondering, after Larry's comments, if I had any good qualities. Maybe mom and dad should of named me Dick.

I was considering counseling, but after your letter, I think I will be ok.

I thought your comments about Adam
Morrison were in poor taste.

"It's not the critic who counts..."

Morrison has more guts in his little
finger than you have in your whole body.

I'm starting to think that Adam must have slept with your wife or perhaps stole your girlfriend, for you to be such an ass towards his behavior (in a game)
