Florida International University is home to one of the coolest basketball courts in the country. Just look at that tropical beach scene! That’s like something out of a margarita-induced Jimmy Buffett fever dream. Just look at it! It makes me want to hit the beach screaming “It’s 5 O’Clock Somewhere.” Paradise!

But this weekend, unfortunately, the $50,000 court was damaged to the point of disrepair by the most obnoxious humans known to planet earth: Crossfitters:

This is why we can’t have nice things. Hey, douchebags… Maybe put some fucking mats down before slamming your weights onto a hardwood floor. Didn’t your mother teach you any manners? Now we know that crossfitters are the douchebags who never use coasters when you invite them over to your house for a party, instead living unsightly rings from drinks all over your $40 Ikea coffee table. More details from the Miami Herald:
The event left significant dents in the floor, probably from the weights used in crossfit competitions. The Athletic Department issued a statement just after 5 p.m. Monday:
“As a result of an outside event held at FIU Arena this past weekend, the court was damaged. The event was fully insured. We anticipate repairs being complete over the next couple of weeks. Unfortunately, the September 17th volleyball match between FIU and Florida Atlantic will be affected and will be played at the FIU Rec Center.”
All so people can do dumb shit like this girl, below. Hope it was worth it!
