Okay, so this one is kinda confusing, but let’s see if we can follow along, okay?
Ty McGrath plays football for Sandwich High School (MA) and a few weeks ago allegedly kicked a freshman player, “prodded” him with a broom (whatever that means) and then force-fed him a brownie. The incident reportedly came to the attention of John J. Amaral who is NOT a member of the football team but a male cheerleader for SHS. Apparently Mr. Amaral didn’t think the school was doing enough to protect the younger player so he allegedly took it upon himself to call Mr. McGrath seven times on his cell phone and reportedly left a voice-mail message “threatening to beat him up and ruin his football career.”
McGrath was eventually suspended from school for the Broom and Brownie incident and removed from the football team, while Amaral faced no actions from the school. As a result, McGrath’s parents have filed criminal charges against the cheerleader, including of two counts of assault and battery with a dangerous weapon: his foot and a broom. They also say that the Broom and Brownie incident was just–wait for it–horseplay that got out of hand and nothing serious.
Not sure where this one is going to go, but things are a little screwy at Sandwich High, to say the least.
It’s been a while since we had a youth sports embezzler on our site. This time it’s the manager for the cheerleading squad at St. Pius High School (NM) who was somehow able to slide $18,000 into her business account before anyone noticed. The real question isn’t how D’Andrea Davis got away with it over the past 10 years (account friends of mine say that oversight of these mini-nonprofit groups is zero) but how parents could fork over that much dough and not have any idea of how it was spend or what they were getting for their money.
Sarah Keville, the star of the Vero Beach High girls soccer team, has won many honors over the years including the 2011 National Soccer Coaches Association of America High School Girls State Player of the Year. But even a Player of the Year can lose her temper sometime and Keville is now suspended for six weeks after she was caught throwing a punch during a game. On video.
The coach says she was provoked with a knee to the back, but that doesn’t matter to the Florida High School Athletic Association which handed down the punishment.
Keville plays for the Fighting Indians.
That’s it. That’s the joke.
You were expecting more? Hey, this ain’t the Daily Show. We takes our jokes were we can can get them.
Not your typical hockey brawl: this one happens after the game following the sportsmanship handshake, involves every player, and all the combatants are under 10 years old.
Here’s more from the YouTube description:
This is my 9-year-old brother’s team Kokshetau – Burabay (green) fighting against the team from the capital city of Kazakhstan – Astana (white). Even though team Astana won against Burabay 5:3, they started talking crap to their opponents during handshake; so the capitan of Burabay’s team could not just let it go and started the fight. My brother Timur Serazhiyev is number 8 for team in green, and he is fighting with number 27 for team in white.
