By now, most of you have seen the picture of the University of Georgia cheerleader Anna Watson, flexing her arms in a classic body builder pose. And, as you can see from the photo, she’s not your average cheerleader.
According to reports, Anna can bench press 155 pounds and was in such good shape she was offered a fitness-modelling contract worth $75,000 . . . but turned it down. Allegedly because the contract had some extreme requirements and insisted that she take Anavar, a legal anabolic steroid. Anna turned that down, but in the mean time, the photo of her flexing her muscles has gone viral and caused controversy over her less than typical cheerleader body.
To us, at least, she seems to be one of the good jocks. Watch the video of her appearance on ABC’s Good Morning America below.
John Puncel worked for a year as the assistant women’s volleyball coach at Pasadena City College (CA) and likely used video to help his players improve their play. That’s NOT the kind of video he had on his cell phone while at the Glendale Galleria mall this week.
Cops noted suspicious activity as Puncel followed a young woman in a skirt up the escalator with cell phone in hand. By standing close to her and putting the cell phone very low, he was allegedly able to get what are called “upskirt” photos or videos that show a, uh, “unique” perspective on the female anatomy. Apparently some people are fans and got to great lengths to obtain the images.
When officers approached him, Puncel allegedly tried furiously to press buttons on his phone–possibly to delete photos or images–and ended up in a scuffle with police. Not only did they find an “upskirt video” showing the young woman’s legs and buttocks, but also a sexually explicit photo of an underage girl. He’s charged with secretly recording under the clothing of another person without consent, battery on a police officer and resisting arrest.
Nothing really new here with the hazing incident on the JV basketball team at Grant High School (Portland, Oregon) that we haven’t seen a million times before: younger players on a team being held down, shorts removed and either a finger–or other object–inserted into their anus as part of initiation process. Well, maybe a couple of new things.
First, this practice is allegedly so common among GHS sports teams that it has a name “G-ing.” As in, “He’s going to get his G-ing after the game tonight.” Sounds to us like there just might be a hazing tradition at Grant.
And second, according to this story, even parents of jocks at Grant feel intimidated, afraid to say anything about what is happening to their children for fear something worse might happen to the lads. That puts things on a whole new serious level when even the culture gets to the parents.
Fortunately, someone did come forward, the school investigated and now the local sex crimes unit is looking into it to see if an charges will be brought.
