<quoted text>I see it the exact opposite. I think the fact that she felt the need to try to make that chick feel stupid says she got rattled. She's on Bourbon Street on Superbowl week and got pissed off that a drunk fan got into her shot? Really? You don't want drunks in your shot, stay off Bourbon Street. As far as what she said, I thought it was funny.
This looks like a "What Not to Do" lesson from a freshman level journalism class. Yeah, it was probably the 50th time she got interrupted and she was frustrated. That's why you shouldn't try to shoot a news segment in the middle of the night on Drunk Boulevard. Poor decision to shoot it there, and tacky, malicious response.
I hope this was her one and only shot at breaking out from her traffic gig.

I don't really feel strongly enough for a double-post. Computer is being goofy.

Any activity that poses a risk to the participant, poses a risk to the spectator, golf probably more so.

I would be curious to know of an activity that only poses a risk to the participant and not the spectator.

Monster trucks?
Xtreme snowmobile?
Down hill skiing?
NASCAR?
Any one of those things can potentially harm the fans when things go out of control.

Hell, even fly fishing is potentially dangerous to the spectator.

Maybe that guy who parachuted from space? I suppose he could have landed on somebody, but the odds seem very remote, especially compared to the risk to himself

True, but the odds of an occurrence happening are not part of the equation, only does the possibility (no matter how remotely) exist that another person could be harmed.

I was thinking of gymnastics, but a bad dismount can send a gymnast catapulting into the bleachers...

Curling. While a curler could slip on the ice and injure himself/herself, considering all spectators are behind a wall/outside the rink, and the 40 lb. stone which is slid across the ice and not thrown travels at 4.5 mph or less, I am curious as to a scenario in which a curler could injure a spectator. That would be quite a sight.

A curler uses a stick to push the rock. That stick could slip out of their hand and poke someone's eye out.

Incorrect. The stone is propelled by the curler pushing a handle that is attached to the stone.

Swing and a miss. Mutt, when you step in it, the thing to do is to wipe it off and then move on, not keep on walking around like there's nothing on the bottom of your shoe.

I have spent most of the day emailing and calling people to let them know that the former Recording Secretary of our Republican Organization died yesterday and informing them of the visitation arrangements. She coordinated the poll clerks in town and was the secretary for the River Watch in addition to sitting on several other boards over the years.

This is going to be crazy on Sunday. She gave so much of herself to our community. I want this many non-family members to mourn my passing and say nice things about me when I'm 90.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
