Today, Bobby Knight won his 900th career game. I am not a Bobby Knight fan. I think the guy is a complete jerk. There are rarely if ever times you should lose your temper, yet Bobby Knight does it with frequency and people just brush it off as, "oh, but he is Bobby Knight".
How come just because you are successful you get to be a jerk. Nowhere else is that more true than sports. Only winning matters, everything else is just secondary. I've written before that nice guys finish last. I guess the converse is true, assholes do finish first.
