Who says the Angels aren’t fun to watch in September? Sosh was about to pop a blood vessel the way he was yelling at Owen. The Angels and Rangers will face off tonight for the final time this season.
Some people will say that fights and bench clearings have no place in sports. I say they do, that’s passion. Seeing Sosh losing it on Owens to defend what happened to Simmons was good for the Angels and the game. You want to see your coach fired up; personally, it showed me that Sosh still has a pulse.
If you’ve ever picked pick-up basketball at a local gym, or a two-hand touch football game, you know that sometimes things can get heated. We as a culture like to watch people fight. That’s part of the reason why we all were glued to Jerry Springer in the 90’s.
In sports, fighting isn’t the norm. There’s always jawing between players. There’s always pushing and shoving in the NBA and NFL. We haven’t seen anything close to the Malice and the Palace incident with Ron Artest aka Metta World Peace. As a result, fans can enjoy players getting into scuffles without being subjected to fighting the players.
So, the question now is will the events of last night carry over to tonight? I’ll definitely be watching to see if they do.
