5 Times Things Were Ruined in Sports


Trends come and go. The important thing is to know when it's time to fade them out.

Bryce Harper's butchering of the word "meme" got me thinking of some other times that things should not have been done or said in the sports realm. From Harper to Cris Carter, some just aren't meant to keep up with the times. It's not for everyone.

1. Harper is a 23-year-old man. There is no reason he shouldn't know how to pronounce "meme." Obviously the word "meme" isn't going away anytime soon, but Harper has permanently changed the way everyone hears it. 

2. That time the NBA Tonight crew tried to rap. No. Just no. Cassidy Hubbarth and Chris Broussard in particular need to never rap again. I'm not even sure I want them listening to it. We don't need them getting any more ideas like this.

3. Remember the schmoney dance? People were glad to see that go after catching these golfers doing it on television. It was pretty much lame to do after this aired.

4. Carter thinks dabbing, what Cam Newton caused a stir doing during the Panthers-Titans game, is called "bapping." It's ok to say you don't know, Cris. This just reeks of someone's dad trying to keep up with the times.

5. Russell Wilson doing the whip and nae nae on the Kids' Choice Awards. I get that it was for the children, but maybe Riley Curry would've been a better candidate to do it. In all fairness, Wilson's dance could've been a lot worse.
