Some people say they don’t believe in Karma, but others point to everyday occurrences as proof that there really is such a thing.
Take the Georgetown University basketball team, for instance.
In keeping with the woke times, the entire squad took a knee during the playing of the National Anthem ahead of their March Madness game against the University of Colorado and then went on to get embarrassed.
Meanwhile, the Colorado squad stood tall and wound up destroying the Hoyas 96-73 in the first round.

That’s the textbook definition of ‘karma.’
“It was a nationally televised butt kicking. Georgetown was humiliated from the opening tip through the final seconds,” The Daily Caller reported.
It wasn’t supposed to be this way.
Yahoo! Sports adds:
Chances are, you can fit Colorado’s entire NCAA Tournament history on the back of an old Patrick Ewing jersey. And now, Ewing is part of that history, too.
The Buffaloes used an early 3-point barrage to parlay their highest seeding ever at March Madness into a first-round win Saturday over one of the biggest names in the game. It was a 96-73 thumping of Georgetown, the program Ewing starred for in the 1980s and now coaches.
Led by Jabari Walker’s 5-for-5 shooting clinic from 3-point range, the fifth-seeded Buffs (23-8) made 16 3-pointers and shot 64% from long range.
“We’re a dangerous team. A lot of teams can’t run with us, because there are so many skill sets we have,” Walker said. “It’s really hard to beat us, I believe.”
Earlier this month, Georgetown managed to win four games in four days in order to take the Big East Tournament title and nudge their way into the NCAAs. But they had to win out over the final four of their season just to manage a 13-13 .500 season. But on Saturday, they didn’t even look like a 50-50 team.
“We didn’t bring our `A’ game,” former NBA star and Hoyas coach Patrick Ewing said. “Both offensively and defensively, things we were doing great in the Big East Tournament we didn’t do well today.”
Next up for Colorado: The No. 4-seeded Florida State, which is looking to for a Sweet 16 bid for the first time since 1969.
As for the kneeling, even NBA Commissioner Adam Silver says it’s too political and too distracting.
As for the Georgetown squad and karma, Fansided had this to offer:
There are a handful of old adages to live by when filling out a March Madness bracket. The three that are the gold standard historically are no No. 16 seeds beat a No. 1 seed (thanks a lot, 2018 Virginia), do not pick all four No. 1 seeds to advance to the Final Four and you better pick a No. 12 seed to upset a No. 5 seed in the Round of 64.
Unfortunately, many bought into the Hoyas’ hype.
This tends to happen when a decent program of note gets into the big dance by winning its conference tournament championship. With a high-profile head coach in Ewing and the Big East being a Power 6 conference, we all wanted to believe the Hoyas would go on a deep run like they did when Ewing starred for them. Too bad Colorado had been one of the Pac-12’s finest all year.
“Hopefully, you did not pick Georgetown to make it to the Sweet 16 or the Elite Eight this March,” Fansided added.
Yes – who could have factored in ‘kneeling for the anthem’ element?
