Act Like a Lady?
By now, you’ve probably seen what has become one of the most popular Internet videos of the year — University of New Mexico soccer player Elizabeth Lambert in a game against Brigham Young University, throwing elbows and punches, viciously colliding with several players and then yanking the ponytail of a BYU player who went crashing to the ground.
I’m curious what everyone thinks about what Lambert did — and why it has made her, to her own despair, such an Internet celebrity. Despite the fact that she has apologized practically to everyone in the world, and despite the fact that she was suspended indefinitely from the team, there are a lot of people who are still in an absolute frenzy about her antics. I actually heard someone on one of the sports cable channels call her the “dirtiest ever” female athlete in all of sports.
