Events that disappointed more than the SI story

Soooooooooooo, that story totally sucked.  Some other people got tats?  Sweet.  That was built up so much I can't believe how terrible it was.  To pick up the mood, I thought it might be fun to list things that were built up and disappointed you more than the SI story.

For me, I can think of 2 things.  1) Prom.  Geesh, that was a lot of money for a dance.  It gets hyped up your whole life and then it really is just an average time.  It is basically a party that you have anytime in HS, except you spend a lot of money on dinner and your clothes and there are teachers there instead of the parents being out of town. 

2) Lost finale.  That show was awesome, and then the finale episode revealed nothing.  So many unanswered questions.  I was pissed really at the whole finale season, but the last episode was the straw that broke the camels back.

What about my fellow Mgobloggers?  Has anything disappointed you more than this incredibly over hyped story?  Besides this thread, that is.

is that it identifes the big story here -- how so many players got cars they couldn't afford -- and then focuses on a smaller story -- the tattoos.

I don't care about the fancy room at the tattoo parlor with the Playstation.  I want to know about the cars.  That's the story that brings down the athletic department and the Gordon Gee, not just the coaching staff.

It doesn't peg him that much for lying either. I'm surprised they didn't more fully cover how he did not report - which may seem reasonable, but in doing so he played key players that would have been ruled ineligible. And then he signed a document, and on and on.

Musberger did a better job covering this aspect on ESPN yesterday morning.
