Insurance for the sports fan's fragile psyche--The Post-Tribune

* VALPO VANISHING INSURANCE: Valparaiso's basketball team has seen an exodus of biblical proportions lately. In the past two years, eight players have left the program early -- including one, Beas Hamga, who left before he even got a chance to play.

A monthly payment of $20 (hey, things cost more at private schools) will give Crusaders fans a safety net. Every time a player pulls a Bouchie, a Haanpaa or a Hamga, the insured fan will receive free physical therapy for the physical whiplash caused by watching these players bolt campus, and free psychotherapy for the mental whiplash caused by the ever-changing expectations. "We're an NCAA Tournament team! We're toast! We're a Horizon contender! We should have stayed in the Mid-Con! We're great! We're terrible! We're... confused?"

Added bonus: If more than three players leave in one year, the insured fan receives a full scholarship to join the team.
