Robert Morris Dance Team in straitjacket costumes
March 17, 2011

And they said we were crazy for posting this story! (Cue the hate emails from people with real mental illness or their family members.) Usually we report on incidents with high school or college dance teams when their uniforms are too tight or their “lap dance” inspired routine offends some parents. This time though, we have a bunch of young women who thought it would be a good “artistic choice”…

March 17, 2011

How bored are teenagers today? Bored enough to pull out the old BB gun and take target practice . . . on some golfers at a nearby course. Not a lot of details on this story, but it is interesting that even after the cops caught these would-be gangsters that all they did was tell them to stop shooting. No tasering, no cuffing them and beating them with a night…

After a 10 month investigation into the…

March 15, 2011

I guess it’s not sex, drugs, and rock n’ roll anymore. it’s sex, drugs, guns, and whatever profession you make a lot of dough in. Music, acting, politics, stocks, the NFL, it doesn’t matter. Chris Cook happens to be the latest in the succession of arrests in the NFL. At least his was during a lockout, so he cannot be punished yet. Chris Cook was arrested Saturday for brandishing a…

Angry fan attacks mascot mocking cheerleaders
March 15, 2011

Let’s face it…  Individually, no one really cares about angry fans, mascots, or cheerleaders…  But combine the three and you have a recipe for something ridiculous. The Ooks Lizard, who appears to have made his own outfit from stuff he found at a thrift store, decided to mess with the opposing cheer squad during their routine before a college basketball game in Lethbridge, Canada.  He made one fan angry enough…

Otherwise,…

Seems like every time we turn around there’s a new video for a professional soccer player either taking a dive for a non-existent injury, taking a cheap shot at an opposing player. This latest video shows what can happen when someone is grabbing for a soccer ball when both of you are on the ground. Certainly one of the more Painful Sports Videos we’ve ever posted. Shoulda worn that cup,…

Michigan State’s head football coach, Mark Dantonio is a known as a tough, no nonsense guy who has had to deal with a number of off-field incidents in his short stint with the Spartans.

March 11, 2011

Answer? Furnishing alcohol to a minor. It was a surprise to me, I thought the age of consent did not go below 17 anywhere in the U.S. I was wrong, because in Seattle the age of consent is sixteen. Still, It appears as if the police were looking to charge Venoy Overton, age 22 and a University of Washington men’s basketball team player, with some kind of sex charge on…

Painful Sports Video: Soccer Player Scores Goal in First Four Seconds of Game

Soccer goal scored four seconds into game
March 9, 2011

We have no idea where this happened or when. What we do know is that if this happened like, twenty times a game in soccer, more Americans would be fans.  Maybe soccer goals need to be taller so it would be easier to just kick it over the goal keepers head. No, seriously. This is like a full court shot to start a basketball game, only better because no one…
