It was by far the most damage Beckham did. He and the Giants absolutely sucked - another one-and-out Wild Card in my life - and today, the lords of sports talk radio are taking batting practice on him. So be it. He hit the wall.
But forgive me here, because I'm a bit old-fashioned. To me, it's refreshing when a player abuses himself after a loss. It's a link to us fans who kick the couch, smash a few dishes and scream at our families. I work off a Yankee defeat by running through the streets, clawing at trees and throwing myself at moving cars. After a Yankee loss to the Dodgers, old George Steinbrenner once broke his hand pushing an elevator wall. I loved him for that. And when Paul O'Neill went bonkers on a water cooler, didn't it deserve to be hit?
Today, Beckham is poster boy for idiocy. Yep, he's a moron. But dammit, he cares. I'd rather have the guy who fights the locker room wall than the one who is petting his bunny rabbit.
I should add that Beckham also reportedly slammed his head into a metal locker. Way to good, my man! Finally, the Giants team supposedly trashed their airplane during the flight home. Were they trying to make it crash into a mountain? If so, that's going overboard. Still, I like the effort!
