I knew Barry Manilow. Barry Manilow was a friend of mine. Clay Aiken, you are no Barry Manilow.
In addition to rooting against people being bad sportsmanship, it is fundamentally unAmerican to want people to fail. You should let them do it quietly so that they can keep it to themselves.
For the record, I have never met Barry Manilow. However, having had many "incidents" with "Fanilows", I feel like I have.
