Open mouth, insert foot

A recent sports anecdote serves as a good reminder of why you might want to be careful about what you say online . . .

One of my favorite players of all time did it again last night. While it wasn't quite up to his usual heroics (there were still 30 seconds left on the clock and they were already up by one point) Robert Horry stole the ball and then a few moments later hit a clutch 3-pointer to put a dagger in the Nuggets. The Spurs are now up 3-1 in the series.

I won't be overzealous though and say the Nuggets playoff hopes are now completely finished. I don't want to make a fool of myself like

For the record, I'm very disappointed in Horry for the hard foul on Steve Nash late in the game. It was uncalled for and over the top.

It's a shame too as he usually displays good sportsmanship on the court. Sure, he's had an incident or two over the years (almost every player has) but I've watched the whole series and he had already been singled out by the commentators several times prior to the incident for his good sportsmanship gestures on things like helping the opponents up off the court, smiling/joking with the opposing team, etc. It may not be right, but all it takes is one bad incident (and especially one at that high-profile moment) to overshadow all the other good moments.
