The reaction has been overwhelming to Lynn Swann’s decision to ban the song girls from basketball games. The irony is so few people bother to go to basketball games in the first place.
Nevertheless, this is another own goal by Swann. And he seems to find new ways to destroy his image. Will anyone remember this was a Super Bowl icon or just a bumbling athletic director?
I’m wondering if anyone tied to the song girls will talk, specifically about the theory Swann banned them because a couple participated in “Fire Helton” chants at the Notre Dame game.
I can remember Mike Garrett’s reputation being horrible. And Pat Haden being vilified. Now Swann seems intent on outdoing both of them.
