Nothing Goes Better with Football than the Klan… Right? Guys? Hello?

An Australian rules football team, the Torquay Tigers, faces’ were a bit red today after their most recent game promotion has caused some uproar. For some unknown reason, fans were upset and angered by the team’s plans for an “All White Night” particularly since the team’s website announcement featured a bridal party, a white tiger and, of course, some Ku Klux Klan members.

It caught me by surprise, because I haven’t been on the website for a while. I didn’t know anything about it,” said Michael Coleman, Torquay Tigers club secretary. “But I’m thinking ‘All White Night’ and hoping no one would find any racism in that. But the picture is likely to be the work of an individual person and it’s certainly not the club’s thoughts.”

The image was removed and replaced with a small photo of Snow White — because that fixes it. Then later, in large part due to the negative backlash, the team removed the event completely and the May 2nd match is just listed as a normal game, sans any promotion.

I’m Unfamiliar with that Language…

0809dancers_krista_double1Denver Nuggets Dancer Krista has been enjoying her first year as a member of the dance troupe; she joined the group because she loves to dance and be involved with the community. How admirable! She seems like a nice, down-home girl who likes to spend her off-hours with her family, looks up to her mother as her hero and hopes that in 5 years she’ll be spending her future lottery winnings. Me too!

When asked what most people don’t know about her, Krista responded “I speak fluent Canadian.”

Everything is Bigger in Texas, Except the Mini-Horses

Nothing says excited to be drafted by the Dallas Cowboys more than a Nerf football, a foam ten gallon cowboy hat and a mini-horse; which is exactly how former USC kicker David Buehler celebrated being picked in the fifth round.

Also, it’s important you know this distinction: a mini-horse is NOT pony, “A pony is a baby horse,” Buehler explained. “A mini-horse is like a midget.” So, now you know.
