Wyoming Football Coach Suspended, Fined for F-Bomb Laden Rant That Included “Howdy Doody” & “Fly Boy” References
As some of you might already know, the University of Wyoming lost to the Air Force Academy on October 13 by the score of 28-27 after throwing away a 10 point lead at half time. Coaches hate to lose, especially by one point, but the Cowboys’ coach, Dave Christensen, took things a step further and decided to vent his frustration–post game–in a profanity-laden tirade against rival coach Troy Calhoun. Apparently Christensen thought Air Force had faked an injury late in the game to avoid using a time-out. And, while that may or may not be true, Christensen went WAY over the line verbally, yet still managed to shake Calhoun’s hand.
We’d post the video here, but it’s been pulled from YouTube and the only copy we can find is over at DeadSpin.com. An UNCENSORED version.
In addition to the F-bombs Christensen also manages to throw in a Howdy Doody slam, a “wooo!” and at the very end a “fly boy” crack.
And all of this on Military Appreciate Night at the stadium. Classic.
For his efforts Christensen has been suspended by the school for one game and fined $50,000.
We think it was the Howdy Doody part that sealed the deal.
