  1. I’ll never understand paying money to watch the best talent in the world do their thing… and then heckling the best talent in the world.

    Like a few people on earth can do what Kyrie does, if any. The heckler, surely can’t, always.

    Why don’t we heckle David Blane when he does his magic? I wonder if Michelangelo had hecklers while sculpting his great works.

    “Booo!!!..You suck Michelangelo!.. You’ll never be half as good as Donatello..”
