Ware returns to the court and a fan steals a hlemet

From where I sit it looks like a welcome return for a basketball star...


Kevin Ware was back on the court and hit a 3-ball with his first shot. It doesn't much matter that it was just an exhibition game. Or that he only had six points in 10 minutes on the floor. All that matters is that he played. After how he looked when he last was in a game this was a wonderful sight. He was already a key player on his Louisville team when he was injured. But his strength of spirit showed through even as he lay on the floor in agony. While medical staff attended to his gruesome injury, Ware himself offered support to his devastated teammates. It was a striking image to say the least. Now he's returned to court. With story after story of bullying, cheating and terrible behavior, it's great to see a good kid make a return. But please, don't try to block any more 3-pointers.

A pair of observations following a bizarre scene in Chicago...

One: why the hell was everyone still battling in the corner after the glass fell out? It's a dangerous situation and these knuckleheads are mugging each other. Second: how much are you allowed to drink at a Blackhawks game?  It was fairly obvious just from the guy's expression that he was plowed out of his mind...and he still had drink left!  I'm not saying it wasn't funny. I'm just glad nobody got hurt. But honestly, was there nobody running down to rinkside to check on the fans? Also, how drunk was this guy to think ripping off a player's helmet is a good idea? He wasn't Rob Ford drunk, but certainly getting there.

At least that's how I see it...and I sit in the cheap seats.
