In the meantime, I think we can all come together on the following two points: 1). Court-storming is out of hand, and 2). There's really nothing wrong with this. Are college students rushing the court way too often for the gesture to mean anything? Sure. Does this matter in any real way? In other words, should we worry about the "cheapening" of a gesture based primarily on college students feeling momentary euphoric joy and choosing to express that joy in a communal manner? Absolutely not.
College kids will keep finding reasons to storm courts, and I'll keep writing about why the court-storming wasn't deserved, and the cycle will go on forever and ever until I shake off this mortal coil. Which will be soon, because I am 76 years old.
