The Good and Oh So Bad of Social Media

Social media was a bad, bad place the last couple days, y’all, whether it be the jackasses (I would prefer a far worse word but this is a family site) going after Simone Biles who can go **** right off, or criticizing Katie Ledecky for not winning a gold medal in an event she wasn’t even favored in, or not medaling in the 200— you try swimming that schedule and see how you do, or the softball team losing the gold medal game— I didn’t see a lot of criticism since that game was at like 3am but it just made me sad, or Naomi Osaka falling— don’t even get me started on her naysayers. Everywhere you turned, seemingly a new idiot appeared that enraged me (and many others) further. While we watch sports for entertainment, an athlete’s job is NOT to entertain us. It is important to remember this when we get an itchy Twitter finger; our unkind, harmful words could be damaging someone’s mental health.

So, in light of all the unpleasantness, when Mizzou fans were treated to not one, but SEVERAL Mizzou Hoops and Cuonzo Martin posts, it did help brighten things up significantly. It seems like maybe one of our coaches is rubbing off on the other in terms of a taking a more active social media role? The more the better, I say. Especially when you are someone with such a powerful voice, like Coach Martin.

KOBE LOOKS GOOD. DAMN. And Zo kinda dancing at the end is so goofy.



Onto the Links! If you need me, I’ll be glued to the tv watching the Olympics for the foreseeable future.
