High School Tries to Crack Down on Streaking

76712007_545afd2372In Minnesota at this past Friday’s St. Francis High School football game, for the third game this season 5 students streaked the field. School officials decided to toughen the penalties for the students as a result, now the students could face suspensions, a ban from school activities or forced transfers or expulsion.

Last month at an away game two of the St. Francis students were arrested after they made their naked run across the field. One of the teens was charged with disorderly conduct and the other may be charged with fifth degree criminal sexual conduct for exposing himself to a minor under the age of 16. A conviction for that would require the teen to register as a sex offender for 10 years. Because, you know, that seems an appropriate punishment for a harmless prank. It’s not like streaking hasn’t been HILARIOUS for as long as crowds have gathered.

I hate prudes. Don’t the school officials recognize that streaking in Minnesota’s frigid temperatures is punishment enough?

Never Let Go Ron, Never Let Go

NBA pain-in-the-ass Ron Artest is a man of diverse talents and interests; for instance, here he is at a random Filipno families home singing My Heart Will Go On by Celine Dion. While I have ZERO idea how this came about, I do enjoy it. My only complaint is that the girl who can actually really sing (unlike Artest who has a rap album he released in 2006) we never see. Also at no point was anyone knocked out by a punch Artest threw…

Ryan Howard Straps the Phillies to His Back

“That hit by Howard was the biggest and most impressive hit I’ve seen in my career. The only thing that might have made it better was if it woulda went out of the yard. He came down to the end of the bench and said, ‘Get me to the plate, boys.’ He wasn’t lying. He got up there and drilled those runs in. That was huge. That was the game right there.” -Cliff Lee on Ryan Howard’s performance.

Awesome.

Deer Wants to Get in on the Pigskin Action

deerThe people of Ohio are mad for football of all levels, there’s a reason the Hall of Fame is in Canton, a place wholly otherwise unworthy of visiting. That level of devotion to the game stretches beyond humans in Wintersville, Ohio where 7-year-old Brandon Hiles chased after a football that rolled into the woods.

Hiles found himself face-to-face with a deer with the ball between them. The buck charged at him, flipping him with its antlers. Fortunately the young lad was only left with some bruises and a gash.

The deer was signed up by the Browns as he already showed more ball skills than any of their players.

I Prefer a Handshake, But That’s Just Me…

matt-kemp-t1Fresh off the Dodgers’ surprising sweep of the Cardinals this weekend the Dodgers jumped on one another on the field and then headed to the clubhouse to continue the celebration.

As super-stud Matt Kemp said,¬†“It’s always good to come in here and spray all your teammates.”

Perhaps Kemp should heed the advice Michael Bluth from Arrested Development‘s gave to his brother-in-law Tobias to carry around a recorder and listen to the things he says because after all, “There has to be a better way to say that.”

UW Gets a Kick out of Football

I was once arrested wearing a pair of University of Washington boxers and essentially nothing else, so while I may not have an affinity for UW, I would say I pay more attention to them than anyone else. Of course, that doesn’t mean I watch their games, I don’t.

Had I seen this week’s contest against the University of Arizona I would have been able to see this incredible interception live. Junior linebacker Mason Foster is out in zone coverage and when an errant pass hits the receiver on the foot and pops up in the air he just happens to be in the vicinity leading to a unique pick-6. Or more acccurately, a kick-pick-6.

UW UA GameIf you’d like to see the actual video of this, it’s available here, just fast forward to the 2:45 mark.

Rudy Acts Petulant, Forces Former Consituents to Swap Seats

Rudy Giuliani DressFormer NYC mayor and still-current fascist Rudy Giuliani was on hand for Wednesday’s Yankees game at their new home. However, all was not well in his world, he was forced to sit just behind the dugout instead of his usual seats alongside the dugout. This is apparently unacceptable for Rudy as the NY Post reported:

He was overheard moaning to wife¬†Judith that he preferred his old seats at the side of the dugout, which allowed him to chat with the players. A spy said, Giuliani was sitting in the first row behind the dugout and was complaining. He told Judy he wanted his old seats back. He summoned security and was immediately swooped away to another seat behind home plate. A young couple sat down in his [old] spot and said, ‘Giuliani wanted our seats so we had to move here.’ ” A rep for Giuliani didn’t get back to us.
