Todd Rogers: A little loco?

Todd Rogers' latest blog entry (here, too) is titled Airport hijinx. Excerpt:

A United rep. comes up to me nervously and tells me I need to calm down. I laugh and tell him I am very calm, just really pissed off. I was getting some pretty good looks from the people about to get on their plane.

I dunno, doesn't sound like wacky hijinx to me. Granted, United is probably the worst airline I've ever flown. But if people have to ask you to calm down, you're probably looking a little crazy.

At the Brooklyn Open two weekends ago, the otherwise-stoic Professor lost his proverbial shit on a controversial call, almost pulling down the net like Karch did back in the day. Karch's meltdown was on game point, though, which is a little more understandable.

And at the AVP Georgia Open, Rogers couldn't take some heckler's garbage and threw up the middle finger in front of the whole crowd. (He apologized via his blog.)

Todd is painted as kind of a dull guy, but when you look a little harder it's obvious he gets fired up, whether it's in airports or at a match. Keeps me interested, anyway.

Rogers goes bonkers at Brooklyn:
