Last week, the star player for the Binghamton college basketball team was kicked off the squad for dealing crack cocaine. Subsequently, Binghamton University coach Kevin Broadus, a former Georgetown assistant, kicked six other players off his team. It was a major setback for a program that went 23-8 and won the America East Conference, qualifying for the NCAA Tournament last season.
Binghamton’s Athletic Director said he wanted to know, “Who’s running the zoo?”
That led to a furious response. From the Binghamton Zoo. In a letter to the editor to the local paper, entitled “Comparison Insults Zoo,” the zoo’s business manager went off:
“Not one of our tigers has been arrested with cocaine. No otter knocks over old ladies to shoplift condoms. Our bear doesn’t have temper tantrums and storm off his exhibit. You won’t find any of our lemurs busted for smoking pot. So, please, stop insulting zoos by comparing those criminals to us.”
