You all know “Too Serious Softball Guy” don’t you? He’s usually the one at friendly company picnic games dressed in full uniform and eye black. He only uses that customized bat he paid big bucks for on the Internet, and gets mad at you if you give “less than 150%” to the game . . . any game . . . that involves keeping score. “Too Serious Softball Guy” isn’t a bad guy, just usually annoying and only infrequently violent.
Not sure what set this guy (Thor Theis) off, but likely it was a close call at the plate, or maybe someone drinking a beer in the outfield. Whatever it was, he got crazy enough for someone to call the cops.
On the plus side, maybe he can earn a starting spot on the prison softball team? They were 16-1 last year with two escapes.
A 22-year-old Mason City man is in Cerro Gordo County Court after allegedly hitting another player with his baseball glove, swinging a bat at others and saying he was going to get a gun and slaughter them all.
Thor Theis has been charged with disorderly conduct, simple assault and first-degree harassment which is an aggravated misdemeanor. The incident unfolded at a co-ed softball game Sunday night at the Frederick Hanford ball diamonds at 824 23rd St. S.W. No one was injured
Once again, we have to wonder if the tradition of the post-game handshake is past it’s prime? In the past we have had incidents where sore losers have tried to pull someone’s arm out of the socket, cut them with some kind of sharp object hidden in a glove and occasionally, someone gets punched in the face. This show of good sportsmanship has evolved into one last chance to take a shot at your opponent.
This is the first time though, that we can remember a member of the winning team acting out. In this case, a young Alabama high school football player named Sandarius Reed who actually scored a touchdown for Elba High in their 21-14 win against Geneva High School. According to police, Reed used the post-game handshake to get more acquainted with the Geneva cheerleaders. And by that we mean he’s accused of groping them. And, unfortunately for Reed, the fact that it happened four times makes it unlikely that he can claim he accidentally brushed against them.
It also didn’t help that–like a lot of incidents these days–police have a video of the alleged inappropirate touching, which helped them bring four misdemeanor charges against the star player. (If you find said video, please let us know.) At right, a picture from Reed’s MySpace page which had the caption under it that read: I take my shirt off watch all the gurls go crazy.
An e-mailed statement to the Dothan Eagle from Geneva County District Attorney Kirke Adams said four misdemeanor harassment charges were filed against Sandarius Reed, 18, of Elba, on Friday. Court records show Reed, of Martin Luther King Drive, was released from custody at the Geneva County Jail after he posted a $1,000 bond per charge. Reed will turn 19 on Oct. 5.
Adams said in the e-mailed statement that the charges stemmed from an incident that happened after a football game between Samson and Elba on Sept. 17, in Samson. He said Reed, an Elba Tigers football player, is alleged to have touched four Samson cheerleaders inappropriately during the “traditional handshake” after the game.
We really haven’t covered the whole “David Beckham slept with a $10,000 a night prostitute” because, well, he’s a soccer player and most of our readers find soccer, well, a tad boring. Even soccer scandals can be boring. Unless, of course, you’re married to one of the Spice Girls and you get injured just walking onto a grass field, much less actually kicking a soccer ball.
Below is a video a Beckam getting heckled by an LA Galaxy fan on his way to the locker room. Someone yells “Stop with the prostitutes!” The shirtless Beckham turns and walks right to the crowd, picking out the allegedly jerk and says “Say it to my face” at which point the guys wimps out and claims it wasn’t him. Hey pal, what’s Beckham going to do, punch you in front of witnesses? Once you’re out of that coma, you’d be on easy street after your lawsuit!
But right now, Beckham and his wife are suing the young woman who claimed to have been “with him” (in the Biblical sense) for $25 million.
DAVID Beckham’s lawyers were waiting to pounce on hooker Irma Nici last night to serve a massive $25 MILLION libel writ. Two burly off-duty cops armed with the 21-page document were staking out a New York hotel where the prostitute has been holed up since her three-in-a-bed lies were published in downmarket US magazine In Touch. The £16 million lawsuit accuses Irma of damaging Becks’ reputation and causing him “mental anguish”.
News of the World reporters tracked down Nici to the room in the New York hotel just hours before off-duty New York cops arrived there with the writ from the angry football superstar and his wife Victoria. The celebrity couple are claiming the huge sum – around £16 million – PLUS punitive damages from the call girl and almost everyone connected with In Touch that printed her pack of lies, including writers, photographers, editors and distributors.
