The guys on the Deerfield High School’s swim team have been suspended from the squad amid hazing allegations. The swimmers and their parents are claiming that the incident is just part of a “team tradition” while the administration says it was hazing, pure and simple. They boys say it’s little more than a game of late nigh “tag” with younger swimmer throwing toilet paper at one house, and then being “kidnapped: by older swimmers and driven to a second house and released.
Yes, that’s what they say they do to initiation new swimmers. Hilarious, isn’t it?
We’re still waiting for details to make our Hazing-No Hazing call, but apparently the folks at MSNBC don’t think very highly of swimming as a sport . . . as evidenced by the photo (see screen capture below) with the story: unless we’re mistaken, those look like the legs of young women and we’re pretty sure that’s synchronized swimming, not the 200 meter medley relay. We’ve asked MSNBC for an explanation, but so far have not received one.
Details people, details! All we know at this point is something happened on the ASU men’s lacrosse team, the school found out and handed them the death penalty: the school suspended the team until August 2009, the put it on a two year probation. All of this–allegedly–stems from a hazing and underage drinking incident earlier this year.

It’s that time of year when high school basketball games start getting a little more heated, the fans get a little more rowdy and the brawls–both on and off the court–get more common. here’s more from USA Today (video clip below):
School officials are investigating after a big brawl broke out during a high school basketball playoff game in Montgomery. The fight cleared the benches of both G.W. Carver and Valley High schools and halted the semifinal game.
The Central Regional Tournament of the Alabama High School Athletic Association game was being played at the Alabama State University Acadome on Tuesday afternoon.
Valley’s Enrique Florence fouled Carver’s Roquez Johnson with 6:23 remaining in the fourth quarter. Johnson shoved Florence and both benches emptied.
Fans poured out of the stands onto the court. Police ended fights on the court but more erupted in the stands.
