I distinctly remember where I was standing at a bar Michigan the night Ron Artest laid down on the scorers table and all hell broke loose. As a sports fan, I found this really interesting ... people lost their minds and started acting like complete idiots.

Good reading on a slow Friday!

Outstanding read...thanks for the link. I like Scott Pollard's reaction when Artest asked if he would get in trouble with the league. Just goes to show how crazy and unstable the guy was (is?).
