The Starting Five

Jason Ivanitz's observations from this weekend's events:

No. 1: Basketball is more than a game to some

Apparently I picked a bad seat for the Bolingbrook-Vincent (Milwaukee,
Wis.) girls basketball game. From practically the opening tip-off, shouts, complaints and even harassing remarks were made from the Vincent parents who were primarily situated behind the scorer's table in their team's 49-48 loss on Sunday. On three separate occasions, I was stepped on or over during the game by an out of control parent yelling at the referees. Everything boiled over with less than a minute to go where words were exchanged between coaches and people started moving to the floor. I was physically pushed aside by a screaming parent during the event as I was trying to listen to what was being said.

No. 2: Joliet Township needs a new mascot

The name Steelmen (or Steelwomen) is unique and fits in with the history of the city. The mascot however could use some work. Joliet's "Steelman" looks like the Michelin Man, only gray and more of a walking block than a puffy one. When a parent a toddler approached the mascot, the little girl cried in horror and wanted to be taken away. If your mascot is making little kids cry, it is probably time to go back to the drawing board.
