There was no Treehouse Fort show last Sunday, and thus, no What Where They Thinking poll. But that doesn’t mean a whole week’s worth of idiotic and embarrassing behavior in the sports world will go without notice here.

Here now is an overview of the Top 7 picks for my What Were They Thinking segment for the week ending November 15:

Charles Barkley, on TNT last Thursday night, who used race to mock Sammy Sosa’s skin color.

Minor league hockey coach Brent Sapergia went nutzo, throwing 24 hockey sticks and other materials on ice.

Chad Ochocinco, jokingly offered a ref a dollar bill to jokingly “bribe” him into making a call favoring to the Bengals.

The Chelsea soccer fan who brushed his teeth in the stands during a match vs. Manchester United.

Three University Tennessee football freshmen, arrested for armed robbery outside a local convenience store.

Bobby Bowden, who forgot his Florida Gators had halftime lead and other second half scores vs. Clemson

Nameless Muhammad Ali autograph seeker who falsely claimed assault by ASU coach Pat Murphy at his charity event.

  • My vote will actually go toward the Tennessee football players, but it should really go to one of the victims:

    Corey B. Zickefoose, 20, said he was sitting in the driver’s seat of a 1998 Hyundai Elantra on Cumberland Ave. when one of the players pulled a gun and demanded money.

    But that’s not enough to prevent the players from being kicked off the team, he told 6 News.

    “I think they should still be able to play football, regardless,” he said. “Tennessee is my place. It’s my football team.”

    All three got kicked off the team. So Lane Kiffin has a better football acumen than this kid, and nobody can take that away from him.

    Matt, I actually had the victim (Corey) in my list of picks but decided 7 was enough. He is an idiot TN football fan though and glad you picked up on that.
