In which I blame the Rainbow Gathering for sabotaging the Griz

Those not fortunate enough to live in Missoula may be unaware that the NCAA handed down a raft of sanctions to the Montana Grizzlies last week, finding that boosters improperly provided players with meals, transportation, laundry services and free legal services. That last one was the most valuable. Griz players get accused of crimes a lot. They get arrested nearly as often—slightly more than they get acquitted. Missoulians love the Griz, mostly in a good way but sometimes like Lenny from Of Mice and Men. It therefore stands to reason that they could not possibly be at fault in the recent NCAA fiasco, and I blame it on the Rainbow Gathering instead. Nothing is sacred to those filthy hippies. We’ll be back tomorrow with Friday links.
