Dumb Ideas in Sports

Cheating against one's coaching disciple, especially if you don't need to do it to win.

Wearing a Texas Longhorn shirt into a sports bar in Oklahoma City.

Don't cheat by using an obviously disgruntled employee to get documents. (Also? SHRED THE DOCUMENTS! Didn't you guys ever hear about Watergate?)

Paying BIG MONEY to an unproven player, especially if the player is damaged goods.

Firing a proven college coach and replacing him with an unproven pro assistant.

Giving a huge contract extension so that you can endure more than a decade of this.

Putting a Major League Baseball franchise in Florida. (375!)

Thinking that wearing a mask will automatically keep you from getting fingered for delivering a beat down.
