    Idol Beat: Fail To The King, Baby

    Coming to a county fair near you...​I'm going to hate tonight.

    As sports fans, I think we probably let single events define players and coaches more than we should. In this era where we want to evaluate things quickly and neatly, it's always easier (and oftentimes, lazier) to just let one play on a big stage define somebody.
