A shovel of wisdom is a chance for you to vent about a topic, coach, person, player or ref. It's an open forum for all subjects with a major in sports. A shovel of wisdom is an "oops up side the head" for something that someone may have said or did. It can go like this: My shovel goes to Colin Kapernick for dressing like a 15 year old. or I'd like to give Jim Harbaugh a shovel of wisdom for acting like a little girl every ten minutes. Or why did the amish let Andrew Luck off of the compound. A shovel has to go to my neighbor for letting his dog dump in my yard every damn morning! How about one for Josh McDaniels for being such a Josh McDaniels? You get the idea now give out some shovels. No fine print, you are all adults.
