What was he thinking? October 19, 2010

Posted by calvin in Uncategorized.

This is an off-the-cuff post. I just heard about what Rick Rypien did in the game tonight in Minnesota. As soon as I heard about it I thought:




This is, I have to admit, something I can’t even begin to understand about professional athletes. I’ve seen so many of them do stupid, thoughtless things where their very careers, their livelihoods, hang in the balance. Whether it’s sitting in a car with a loaded gun and a bunch of pot, or having sixteen mistresses, or knocking around your wife, or attacking a fan – what are you thinking? Is it a God complex? Are these people simply unable to control themselves? What do you all think?

Taunting a guy who is already upset was not a smart move by the fan, but the player probably wasn’t thinking at all and over reacted. He has a pretty checkered history and probably needs to learn some self-control. There’s not much of an excuse for his actions.
