Jon Bois came to bury Freedom Hall, not praise it.

SB Nation editor Jon Bois' column on the last Louisville Cardinals game played in Freedom Hall hasn't really gone down well with some fans. Maybe that's because it was less of a thoughtful reflection on the passing of an era, and more like Roy Clark's "Thank God and Greyhound."
Bois' reflections on the all but former home arena of Louisville (which despite the title of this column isn't really going anywhere) are not too favorable. His complaints about Freedom Hall location range from its "isolated" location from the campus in a "concrete desert' to the Hall's exterior.
It's there that Bois drops what may be one of the best put-downs ever.
"Of all the sports venues in the United States, Freedom Hall is surely the easiest to draw in MS Paint. My God, this building is boring. I do not know who designed it but I will bet you ten dollars that his favorite dish was oatmeal."
Needless to say some Cardinals' fans aren't happy with Bois. One of which claimed that Bois "must have been neglected as a child and raised by wolves – GAY ones (no, I am NOT homophobic!)." Which is apparently already starting to become a meme on its own. You can tell internet greatness when it begets more internet greatness. This is it.
