De Secundis Mensis Meritis

Note, in the image above, the young man in the highlighted portion. He is a fan of the University of Oregon's basketball team. Note that he his flipping not the single, but the feared double bird at Kevin Love of UCLA. Shortly, he will become a sadder and wiser young man.

You see, that photo ran in the print edition of Sports Illustrated, accompanying this article. The father of the young finger-waver is a subscriber. He was, shall we say, less than impressed, and penned the following missive which appeared in a subsequent issue of SI:

  • "I was shocked to see, in a photo of the Oregon student section, my son partaking in the harassment of UCLA's Kevin Love. When he came home the following weekend, his car was taken away and he headed back to school on a bus. I am embarrassed and wish to apologize to Kevin and his family." -- Armando Navarro, Clackamas, Ore.

Well done, Mr. Navarro! (Fez tip to Deadspin and andWhammy!)
