BYU Commits "Miscarriage of Justice" Against Jim McMahon

BYU has denied Jim McMahon entry into its hall of fame and refused to retire his number for over 25 years. He set numerous records and essentially elevated the BYU football program to national prominence. I love the punky QB as much as the next guy, but I'm not going to get my panties in a bunch over this nonsense. He brought Chicago a Super Bowl and we will always love him for it. Apparently the punky QB's punky dad thinks otherwise:
"When he was recruited, the coaching staff assured me and my family that even though he was not a Mormon, he would be treated fairly. Obviously, that was a lie. The university and the Mormon church should be ashamed of themselves for allowing this miscarriage of justice to my son Jim. I can only hope that before I die this miscarriage of justice is corrected and Jim's jersey is retired and he is inducted into your Hall and his name is placed on the ring of honor on your stadium. If this is not done, then you should rename your Hall of Fame the Hall of Shame."
This isn't a really big deal, I just think it's funny that McMahon's dad called his teacher to ask her to change Jim's grade. I thought that kind of thing ended when you turned 18. Not in the McMahon family I guess. Moral of the story? If anyone steps on the field in a BYU number 9 jersey, you have Papa McMahon's permission to chase down the pretender and spit on his justice miscarrying face. There's only one #9 at BYU, bitch.

Your parents called teachers to change your grades when you were 18?

Doesn't this practice typically end, I don't know...before it gets started?
