clumsy embarrass

“Are you referring to the fact that you can’t walk across a flat, stable surface without finding something to trip over?”

So.

 

 

This morning I cruised thru the sports news to see my undergraduate alma mater, USC, had just won the conference women’s tennis championship beating the ever hated UCLA <fight on!>.

 

 

And they broke the trophy.

 

 

Oops.

 

oops trophy

Yup.

 

 

They dropped the trophy … and it shattered.

 

 

This made me think about all those wacky trophy ceremonies at the end of the championship games & events where they ask someone to pick up some huge incredibly unwieldy trophy and why they are not dropped more often.

 

 

Well.

 

 

It happens.

 

 

In fact … it reminded me of my “Oops. Clumsy me. Uh oh. That was a $50 million stumble. Do I tell mom?” post: http://brucemctague.com/oops-clumsy-me-uh-oh-that-was-a-50-million-stumble-do-i-tell-mom

 

 

And while the USC women’s tennis team is kind of funny … this one is hilarious.

 

 

In soccer … Real Madrid won the Spanish Cup but the celebrations went awry when Sergio Ramos dropped the trophy <oops part 1> from the roof of an open topped bus … and then the bus frickin’ ran it over <oops part 2>.

 

 

Bus running over trophy:

 


Ok.

 

 

This one may be even better.

 

 

While on a recruiting trip at University of Florida the recruit knocked Florida’s 2006 national championship crystal football from its pedestal.

 

<oops>

 

 

By the way … the recruit did not go to Florida.
By the way … the Waterford Crystal trophy is worth something like $30,000.

 

 

And in 2012 Alabama’s crystal national title trophy was shattered … oops … when the father of an Alabama player accidentally knocked the trophy over when he stumbled on a rug that was under the trophy display.

 

 

<oops … bring out the broom and dust pan>

 

 

I love this shit.

 

I wish it would happen more often.

 

 

I am sure trophies & awards are of value in some way but in general they seem inordinately exorbitant and useless.

 

clumsy trip

All I know is that after watching the Stays in Las Vegas commercial maybe it does have some use:
